Oyetola tasked the residents to keep up their support for his administration especially on the issue of security of lives and properties.

He said, “We should adhere to the lesson of Ramadan, it is the month of peace, joy, love and giving to one another. Let us do good and help each other, God will judge us base on our deed. Don’t think evil of your brothers, you should make restitution with anybody we offend.

“We that God has place in position of power, it is a great test and we must do everything possible not to let Him down. We must do things with the fear of God. In this position I am today, God placed me there and sent me on purpose. I will continue to govern the state with the fear of God.”

Oyetola also tasked residents to collaborate with the government and security operatives to enable them strengthen the security of the state.

Read him: “Let us join hands for the betterment of our state. The security of our state is paramount, security is very important, we are challenged on the issue of security in Nigeria, I thank God that we are expressing less issue of insecurity.

“We should all pay attention to security. The government is trying its best but you must assist us. Those that are causing insecurity are living within us, let us report them before they cause mayhem in our society. We must pray for our country. There’s is trouble in Nigeria. We must continue with prayer. We all have a role to play on the issue of insecurity don’t leave it alone for the government. What we are hearing is not palatable in the country irrespective of tribe.”

In his lecture, the famous Islamic scholar, Sheikh Buhari Musa, Ajikobi 1 charged the residents of the state to intensify support for the Governor in his bid to transform the state.
