Despite numerous security challenges facing Oyo State at the moment, Governor Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday, insisted that the state is a bit peaceful and accommodating.
Makinde stated this while hosting the new Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, in charge of Zone XI, Osogbo, AIG Olasupo Ajani, at the Governor’s Office, Secretariat.
He said: “Oyo State has been a little bit peaceful but we have serious challenges, security-wise, in the entire country.
“Also, at this time, we are faced with economic issues. So, if you have to do your work in the face of those challenges, it is almost like being hit twice because the work itself is difficult.
“When you have an atmosphere of economic prosperity, the people are not agitated but, now, any small thing, people are tensed up.”
Earlier in his remark, AIG Ajani said the purpose of his visit was to formally inform the governor of his arrival as the new AIG Zone XI, and to also appreciate the governor and the citizens of the state for accommodating and supporting the Nigeria Police.
