Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has named the new hilltop Government House, Ayoba Villa, after the former governor of the old Western Region, the late Maj.-Gen. Adeyinka Adebayo.
Fayose also named the General Hospital in Iyin-Ekiti, the late general’s hometown after Adebayo.
The ex-military governor’s remains will be interred in his country home on Saturday.
Fayose made the announcement at a meeting he held with the beneficiaries of the N5,000 social welfare scheme at the Government Houses premises on Monday.
He said the imposing governor’s official residence built by the administration of former Governor Kayode Fayemi will henceforth be known as “General Adeyinka Adebayo House, Oke Ayoba, Ado-Ekiti” in honour of the late army officer.
The governor urged the people of the state to turn out end masse and pay their last respect to the deceased during the lying-in-state in Ado Ekiti on Friday and funeral service in Iyin-Ekiti on Saturday.
