The lawmaker representing Ibadan North Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Hon. Musliudeen Olaide Akinremi, has alleged that Governor Seyi Makinde is not doing enough to tackle insecurity in the state.
Akinremi, who is the chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Science Research Institutes, made the allegations while addressing journalists.
Akinremi was reacting to various cases of security breaches occasioned by kidnapping, killings and attack on innocent citizens in the state.
The APC chieftain while speaking shortly after a town hall meeting at the Samonda area of the state, regretted that Makinde is not doing enough in the area of security compared to what the immediate past Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, did while in power.
Akinremi said it was unfortunate that residents of the state could n longer enjoy the kind of security they enjoyed during Ajimobi’s administration.
He said, “As you all know the kind of security that we enjoyed in Oyo State during the time of our former Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi.
“During the time of our former Governor, we all know what we enjoyed in all parts of Oyo State.
“It is unfortunate that we are experiencing this in the state. I will not say much. I wish them well.
“But, as lawmakers, we are assisting the state, you know regardless of party affiliation, we are talking about people, if APC is there, it is the same people, if PDP is there, it is the same people.
“Regardless of the party affiliation, I think we are trying our best as lawmakers to assist the state government in tackling insecurity in the state.
“So, we wish them well, but they should be prepared to hand over power to APC in 2023
