Southwest Govs. will launch security architecture in August – Makinde
Governor Makinde, who was speaking at a special thanksgiving service in honour of his mother, Madam Abigail Makinde at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Yemetu, Ibadan, said Oyo State would also launch a state-wide security system before his 100 days in office.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa notes that the Southwest governors have been meeting to find lasting solutions to the security challenges in the region.
Governor Makinde while reacting to issue raised by the officiating clergy, Venerable Samuel Osungbeju, which harped on the rising waves of insecurity in the land, said the governors would leave no stone unturned to secure the Southwest.
In a sermon, Venerable Osungbeju called for love and tolerance among Nigerians, adding that people should always show love to other fellow human beings.
Venerable Osungbeju said no nation or state could prosper without love among its people, pointing out that incessant maiming and killing of innocent citizens across the country called for concerted prayers and divine intervention.
Dignitaries who attended the event include wife of governor Makinde, Tamunominini, a Commissioner-designate, Chief Bayo Lawal and former First Lady, Alhaja Mutiat Ladoja.
