Oyo State Governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, on Sunday, said that he will soon expose those politicising the issue of security in the state.
The governor, who stated this while addressing the congregation at the St Peters Anglican Cathedral, Aremo, Ibadan, on the occasion of Easter Sunday Service, said that though, the state is experiencing a level of insecurity, the situation is not peculiar to the state but a nationwide phenomenon.
The governor stated that security issues ought not to be politicised.
He said, however, that “if they are politicising issue of security because they want to be in power in 2023, it means they are making a huge mistake.”
He said that his administration has taken time to investigate and profer solutions to reports of insecurity across the state.
He implored those behind the politicisation of insecurity because of their 2023 ambition to jettison the idea and seek the face of God instead of engaging in actions he said, could trigger palpable fear in the state.
The governor further felicitated all Christians and the entire people of Oyo State for the Easter celebration, admonishing them to forgive one another in the spirit of the season.
Earlier, the Diocesan Archbishop of Ibadan North Diocese, Most Revd Segun Okubadejo, charged every Christian to emulate the teachings and ways of life of Jesus Christ.
He urged Nigerians not to relent in praying to God Almighty for the restoration of peace and a secure nation.
