A statement by Akin Omole,  Commissioner, Ministry of Information and Values Orientation, indicated that the operation was carried out with the support of security agencies who provided adequate security cover for the journey from Jos all the way to Ado-Ekiti.

The operation was led by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Youth and Student Matters, Mr. Moses Ademiloye.

“On hearing of the plight of the stranded young Ekiti indigenes, Governor Fayemi spared no cost in facilitating the logistics and security required for their safe evacuation in line with the government’s commitment to the welfare, safety, and security of all Ekiti indigenes at home and abroad,” he said.

One of the affected persons, Miss. Aina Tolulope thanked the governor for coming through for them when they felt all hope was lost, because of the suspension of academic activities, the curfew imposed, and general state of insecurity.

“I am very happy to be home, and I am proud to be from Ekiti state, and happy that we have a governor who goes the extra mile to ensure no one is left behind. He has demonstrated expertise in governance, and shown himself to be a father, and a loving person. Thank you Governor Fayemi.”
