Akure, Nigeria

Lucky Aiyedatiwa, governor of Ondo State, says his administration is committed to providing improved security for the people of the State.

Aiyedatiwa stated this while receiving military personnel led by the general officer, commanding the 2 Division of the Nigerian Army, Ibadan, Major General Obinna Godwin Onuborgu, in his office, in Akure on Wednesday.

The governor highlighted the efforts of his administration toward ensuring optimal security through the support of conventional security agencies, including the Army.

“Thank you for stopping over and we appreciate your men for providing security to the people. We have been enjoying that support from your men in Ondo State,” the governor said.

“We have some peculiar situations in the State, especially our borders with Edo and others. The Army has always been there to support us anytime there are kidnappings because the police alone cannot do the job.

“We will continue to encourage and support the synergy of the military, police, civil defence and our homegrown security outfit, Amotekun Corps to enhance our security and protect our borders.”

Aiyedatiwa pleaded with the military and other security agencies to ensure maximum security during the November 16 Governorship election in the State.

Speaking Major General Obinna Godwin Onuborgu said he took over the Division on March 13, covering Kwara, Kogi, Edo, Osun, Oyo, Ekiti and Ondo States.

“I am here to see my troop across the length and breadth of Ondo State to encourage them and to assess the security situation in the State. I have been well briefed by the Brigade Commander and other security agencies”, he said.

He lauded the governor for his support to the Nigerian Army and other security agencies towards sustaining the status of Ondo as one of the most peaceful States in the country.
