Gov Oyebanji restates commitment to citizens’ security

Ekiti State Governor, Biodun Oyebanji, has restated his administration’s commitment to the security and safety of the lives and property of residents of the state.

The governor made this known in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday while receiving the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 2 Division of the Nigerian Army, Ibadan, Major General Bamidele Alabi and other top military officers in his office.

Gov Oyebanji said his government would continue to collaborate with the Nigerian Army and other security agencies to ensure the safety of lives and property of the people.

Commending the Nigerian Army for its dedication and hard work, Governor Oyebanji acknowledged the pivotal role the military is playing in maintaining law and order in the country.

“I don’t know what would have become of this country if we don’t have dedicated men in the Nigerian Army combating insurgencies upfront. I must appreciate the army and the sister security agencies for still being what they are despite all the challenges in the country. We are extremely grateful.

“As far as we are concerned as government, we will continue to collaborate and partner with the Nigerian Army because it is in our interest to do so. Once a state or society is secured, development will come. Investors don’t go to troubled zones, so it is in our interest to ensure that we keep this state secured,” the governor stated.

Earlier in his remarks, Maj Gen Alabi, who thanked the governor for his support of the Nigerian Army and for putting every measure in place to ensure there is peace and tranquillity in the state, said the purpose of their visit was to formally introduce himself to the governor and thank him for all the support he has given to the Nigerian Army in Ekiti State.

He assured the governor that the Nigerian Army would continue to work with other security agencies to ensure that the state continues to enjoy peace and security at all times.
