With uncertainty of when and how the Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde will woke up to security challenges in Oyo state, the Caretaker Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Alhaji Azeez Olatunde has also joined concerned residents in complaining about the security situation in the Oyo state, he urged Governor Seyi Makinde to rise to the challenge of protecting lives and property.
” Telling Truth to power is hard to come by in Oyo State Government of 2021, if the Party in Power cannot be ashamed to admit failure of their Party in Power.
” Imagine the PDP Oyo State claiming that the achievement of top notch security achievements of Senator Abiola Ajimobi led Government was made possible because PDP government at the center then was able to provide adequate security for Nigeria hence that rub off on Oyo State.
Reflecting on how immortal Ajimobi started, he said.
“Oyo State government under my leadership will not tolerate any form of violence, brigandage, destruction of properties, chaos and lawlessness under any guise.
We will deal with perpetrators with the force of law.”
Going further with seriousness, Ajimobi went on to say that “the era of sacred cow is gone for good in oyo state, whether auxiliary or back axle or Tokyo or Osaka.
Anyone who is implicated in the endemic and senseless conflict that has given our dear pacesetter state the bad name of of violent community must face the law.”
That was a serious government.
From the above analysis, it is very very clear that Senator Abiola Ajimobi led government fashioned out its ingenious means of banishing crime and criminality from the pdp government that is enmeshed with its own security challenges.
What is painful to us is the failure of Governnor Seyi Makinde to build on the template of success inherited from Ajimobi led Government.
Imagine innocent woman, Alhaja Serifat Adisa, the CEO of SUBAWA filling Station, Igboora Road Idere, that was kidnapped and murdered on Saturday 2nd January 2021 in front of her filling station, among other high and low profile violence that has now become synonymous with Oyo State since the government of Makinde.
Today it is independent petroleum marketers (ipman) that is threatening to shutdown its retail outlets in oyo because one of them was affected, whose next?
This is why we are calling all concerned to advise gov seyi makinde to provide security of life and properties and leave politicking for the future.
