The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has described the State’s investment in security as one of the most valuable achievements of the Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu-led administration.
The party in a statement on Tuesday by its Publicity Secretary, Alex Kaleijaye said that the party commends the second batch of Amotekun recruits, and the additional 20 new operational vehicles to the State security outfit, for effective coverage of the 18 local government areas by the governor.
“The party observes that enhancement of security measures in the Sunshine State has allayed fears of violent invasion among the residents and prospective investors. Staying effectively secured is prerequisite for prosperous society.
“Ondo APC argues that security of lives and property has no alternative. No amount of money and efforts by any government could be considered outrageous for safety and wellbeing of the citizenry.
“The party further contends that security is too important to be left entirely for government, and calls on individuals and corporate bodies to generously support the initiative.
“The party implores the corps to ensure proper usage and maintenance of the operational vehicles, and always make good their pledge to work for the State in all sincerity.”
