Security: Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola Challenges Buratai
Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola Thursday met with Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai in a bid to upgrade the security situation in the state.
A statement issued in Osogbo by Mr Adeniyi Adeshina, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, said Oyetola made the plea when he met with Buratai in Abuja.
Osun is reputed for its status as the safest state in the country.
He also said that the governor commended Buratai for the efforts of the military whose engineers were constructing a bridge across River Osun to connect Ede with Kuta and other communities in the state.
The governor said: “We believe security is paramount and it is the key to development. We need your full support for the joint patrol plan.”
The statement quoted Buratai as assuring the governor that he would make all the efforts to support the security efforts in Osun.
