Oyo State deputy governor, Engr. Raufu Olaniyan on Friday made a personal donation of patrol motorcycles to security operatives in Oke Ogun area of the state, to boost their role in ensuring the safety of lives and properties.
Speaking at the event, Olaniyan noted that security is one of the cardinal objectives of the present administration headed by Governor Seyi Makinde, adding that the government has invested massively on facilities and equipment for security operatives in the state to perform their roles.
”In the light of the security challenges in the country, it is imperative that we support the government in tackling this malady. It was therefore a delight for me to donate patrol motorcycles, from my purse, to the various security outfits operating in the Oke Ogun area of our state,” Olaniyan said.
He stressed that security matters should be the responsibility of all and not the government alone.
He, however, urged well meaning individuals and lovers of peace to support the government in creating a safe and conducive environment for growth.
