Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has declared his administration’s zero-tolerance for human trafficking.
Fayemi said his administration will not relent in its efforts to rid the state of human traffickers.
The governor added that the government has put in place institutional measures to eradicate these inhumane practices and ensure that those engaged in such illegal acts are made to face the law.
The deputy governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, spoke yesterday on behalf of Fayemi during the inauguration of the State Task Force on Human Trafficking and the Justice Sector Reform Committee at the Conference Hall of the Governor’s Office, Ado Ekiti.
According to a statement signed by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Deputy Governor, Odunayo Ogunmola, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Olawale Fapohunda, is the chairman of the two committees.
Fayemi said committee members were carefully selected based on their experience and pedigrees, urging them to see the assignment as a call to duty.
Thanking them for accepting the offer to serve, the governor prayed God to give them the wisdom to discharge the assignment aimed at reforming the society.
