Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has ordered relevant parties to use more strategic methods to address insecurity.

At an extended security council meeting on Thursday in Ibadan, Mr. Makinde delivered the opening remarks.

Traditional leaders, leaders of the state’s security agencies, Williams Adebowale, the new police commissioner, and chairmen and vice-chairmen of local governments all attended the meeting.

The conference, according to the governor, was called in response to recent security lapses in Owo (Ondo), Kaduna, and other regions of the nation.

In order to protect the safety of people and property, he asked security agencies to speed up their emergency reaction times and boost cooperation and teamwork.

Additionally, Mr. Makinde lobbied for support from traditional institutions and all governmental levels for the nation’s security services.

He claims that this cooperation has improved Oyo’s security condition and made it more tolerable.

The governor urged everyone to take security seriously.

He urged traditional and religious leaders to educate their followers and congregations about the importance of using the emergency security code, “615,” to inform security personnel.

“Security is everyone’s business. We will have a safer and more secure environment if everyone plays his part,” he stressed.

Insisting he “will not allow ethnic bigotry” in the state, Mr. Makinde stressed that his administration will solely pursue criminals.

“We are after the criminals. It is only when we allow them to thrive that they will be able to carry out their nefarious activities,” he added.

Bayo Lawal, the commissioner for local government and chieftaincy concerns, had earlier expressed optimism that the meeting would provide answers to the state’s security problems.
