SOUTHWEST SECURITY: GOVERNORS TO BRAINSTORM IN IBADAN TOMORROW

 The Governor of Ondo State Rotimi Akeredolu on Sunday said stakeholders in the Southwest will meet on Tuesday June 25th 2019, in Ibadan, Oyo state to brainstorm on ways out of the security challenges facing the region especially spate of kidnapping on highways in the area.

The Governor disclosed this during special thanksgiving services at the Methodist Cathedral Church, Gbogi, and Prayer Centre Church of God, both in  Akure.

The Southwest Governors Forum chaired by Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is organising a Security Summit at the instance of Oyo state governor Seyi Makinde on Tuesday to discuss how to tackle the growing insecurity challenges in the southwest states.

Akeredolu decried upsurge of criminality particularly the alleged kidnapping, raping and armed robbery by herdsmen

The governor maintained that ranching would be encouraged arguing that cow could hardly identify maize, rice and other crops from grasses during grazing

Taking his sermon from first king, Chapter nineteen, verses nine and fourteen, the presbyter and Gbogi Methodist cathedral administrator, The Very Reverend Olufemi Adeleke encouraged Nigerian leaders to find a lasting solution to the frequent herdsmen attacks in the region

Also preaching from Proverbs Chapter fourteen verse thirty-four, the general overseer of the prayer centre, Prophet Samson Oluwamodede who said God would turn the nation around if the citizens could shun iniquity also called for prayers against insecurity

The services were attended by political, religious and traditional rulers including the Déjì of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi, Oniwo of Iwo, Osun State, Oba Adewale Akanbi and many other important dignitaries.
