The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has vowed to expose those politicising security issues in the state.
The Governor made the comment on Sunday, March 4, while addressing the congregation at the St. Peters Anglican Cathedral Church, Aremo, Ibadan.
The Governor noted that the security challenges wasn’t only peculiar to just the state alone but the country as a whole.
He said, “security ought not to be politicised. But if they are politicising issues of security because they want to be in power in 2023, it means they are making mistake.”
“If there’s no Oyo State or Nigeria by 2023 because of the politicisation of security; who and what are they going to govern?, “he queried.
Seyi Makinde implored those behind the politicisation of security challenges in the state because of their 2023 political ambitions to seek the face of God instead of engaging in actions that could trigger insecurity in the state.
Also, he used the occasion to x-ray efforts made so far by his administration in addressing the menace of insecurity in the state.
He said, “Among the efforts to boost security in Oyo State, were the purchase of 100 units of KIA cars equipped with communication gadgets for security agencies and re-establishment of Swift Response Squad and Operation Burst.”
“Others are purchase of all communication equipment by security operatives and establishment of Amotekun security outfit with 1,500 corps.”
While wishing Christians a happy Easter celebration, the Governor assured all residents of the state that his government would not rest until the issue of insecurity is brought to its barest minimum.
