Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has said that tackling insecurity in the State and the nation at large was a duty call, not for government alone but everyone.
Abiodun, stated this while declaring open a Security Summit organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ogun State Chapter, held at the Treasure House of God, Abeokuta, noting that the issue of security required strategic approach by stakeholders.
The Governor, represented by the Secretary to the State Government Mr. Olatokunbo Talabi, commended CAN for the summit, which he noted was timely, assuring that his administration placed high premium on security matters and has since embarked on initiatives that would assist in tackling its challenges.
“The issue of security affecting State and the country at large is a call to duty for everyone. No state or nation can develop without securing the lives and property of the people. We therefore call on the people to be their brother’s keeper and give useful information that could assist security agencies to deal with security threats promptly”, he said.
In his goodwill message, Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Olakunle Oluomo, emphasized that the issue of security of lives and property should not be left in government’s purview, appealing to stakeholders to brace up for the challenge of tackling insecurity in the country.
Also speaking, Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ogun State Chapter, Bishop Tunde Akin-Akinsanya, said the Summit was conceived to complement State government’s efforts in tackling security challenges affecting the people.
