Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Tuesday, commissioned Gossy Water Production plant, signalling the commencement of full-scale production of the popular table water brand, a year after the parent company was liquidated.

The entire Ikogosi was turned into a carnival as both the young and the old trooped to the major streets as early as 6.00am singing and dancing in celebration of the return of the company.

Governor Fayemi who led other dignitaries to commission the plant said it was regrettable that the Gossy Water Company which could have been generating revenues for the State went moribund due to lack of conducive environment for ease of doing business in Ekiti State after he left office in 2014.

The Governor recalled that the bottling company was established as a joint business venture under Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo, the first civilian Governor of the State and the investment “made waves in the market thereby boosting the IGR of the State and creating job opportunities for the citizens”.

He described the revitalisation of the company as another milestone in the state government’s determined efforts to revive moribund projects in Ekiti State.

“I am particularly excited about this development because of its expected multiplier effects on the economic lives of the people and governance in the State. I, therefore, congratulate Ekiti Kete, home and abroad, for the restoration of this company which is an offshoot of one of our most prominent tourist attractions, the Ikogosi Warm Springs”, he said.

While lamenting the neglect of the tourism corridors of Ekiti State by the last administration, the governor said Ikogosi resort has now become “a ghost of its former self and hardly enjoys patronage because of its state of dilapidation”.

Dr Fayemi, however, assured that his administration would soon revive the warm spring resort, through private sector investment, and restore it to its pride of place as a first-class tourist destination in Africa.

While promising that his government would ensure an enabling environment for businesses to thrive, the governor said his administration has mapped out strategic plans towards the resuscitation of other abandoned and moribund investments in the State.

The governor commended one of the leaders of Ekiti socio-cultural group, Ugbimo Ure Ekiti, Sir Remi Omotoso for playing a key role in ensuring that the Gossy Water Company returns and called on other Ekiti indigenes to support the government in moving the State forward.

In his speech, the Board Chairman of Gossy Warm Spring, Mr Wole Adeyegbe expressed the readiness of the company to run the Gossy brand profitably and extending the brand to related food and beverage segment.

Adeyegbe added that the company has employed Ekiti indigenes, adding that it is planning to have at least 300 of its direct and indirect staff from the State.

Earlier, the Group Managing Director of Fountain Holdings Ltd, Mr Seyi Ayeleso thanked Governor Fayemi for working with Benin Electricity Distribution Company to restore power to Ikogosi Ekiti and its two neighbouring communities; saying that this would help forestall a re-occurrence of power challenge which was part of the reasons for its liquidation by its owner company, UAC.

Good job Fayemi. The water that chemist analyzed and was rated the "purest" of all the table waters amongst Eva and the rest is what Fayose shut down production on. And some people actually rated him as some sort of hero, good thing his stooge Eleko (or whatever his name is) didn't win the governorship ticket.

This ism laudable. It is a good job. When the leader is thinking, acting and performing, things will go as it should. Please bring back Oodua textile industry as well.

Commendable..

The competition in bottle water industry is at all time high, profit is shrinking daily, running cost has skyrocket because of price of diesel to run generators and distribution vehicles. Can the governor sustain the subsidies given to the company to run? time will tell.

My suggestion is adoption of renewable energy as main source of power in the factory, it will give them edge over other competitors in the medium and longterm.

He is at least trying to do something but I wonder how much IGR this would contribute to the state, is this some mega factory or what? Is this how Lagos generates its IGR? Bottled water produced in one small looking warehouse or room? The advisers of the Governor should start thinking bigger, nice one though, they have scored a cheap political point at the minimum but they can do better.
