Insecurity: Ondo Governor Doles Out 25 Vehicles To Security Agencies

On Wednesday, Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State presented over 25 Hilux vehicles to various security agencies in the state, News About Nigeria reports.

According to the governor, the gesture is part of his administration’s effort towards ensuring adequate security of the lives and properties of residents of the state.

Aiyedatiwa, who spoke while presenting the vehicles to the heads of the security agencies at his office car park in Akure, the Ondo State capital, revealed that today’s presentation of vehicles was the first batch of the provision of operational vehicles to boost security by his administration.

He further pledged his administration’s commitment to continuing the legacy of his predecessor, the late, Rotimi Akeredolu, by fighting insecurity and also safeguarding the people of the state.

Governor Aiyedatiwa said, “As an integral part of government functionaries, it is no gainsaying that security agencies are pivotal to the overall security architecture of any society. This daunting task often requires patrolling from one location to another.

“To ease this important yet herculean function, we are providing these high-grade Toyota Hilux vehicles to enhance performance in the discharge of their security mandate. I remain steadfastly committed to putting the security and safety of our people first. Since I assumed office, I have consistently emphasised the need for all security stakeholders and state actors to work as one to secure lives and property.

“It should be noted that these vehicles are in addition to the regular logistic support we have been providing for all our security outfits. While assuring you that this kind of intervention shall continue subject to the availability of funds, I charge you to make good use of these vehicles and continue to work tirelessly to keep our state safe. To the good people of the Sunshine State, we assure you that we will not relent in creating a secure and prosperous environment for all.”
