The government of Ogun state has denied claims it invited popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho to help tackle insecurity in the state.
Recall that Igboho who arrived Ogun state yesterday, had hinted on being invited by the State Governor Dapo Abiodun.
Nevertheless reacting to this, commissioner for information and strategy, Abdulwaheed Odusile affirmed that the state government didn’t invite Igboho.
He also added the special adviser on public communication to Governor Dapo Abiodun, Remmy Hazzan’s comment of “Ogun state government working with all the stakeholders both within and outside the state to ensure security of lives and property”, was “disingenuously twisted”.
“The interview was twisted to achieve sensational effects. In the interview, Hazzan had said that the state government, in its usual inclusive approach to governance, would continue to work with all the stakeholders, both within and outside the state to ensure security of lives and property.
“Sadly, however, this statement was disingenuously twisted to mean that the state had invited Mr. Adeyemo to help curb insecurity. This is regrettable and totally misleading.
“The Dapo Abiodun-led administration, since inception, has been known to be inclusive in its approach, collaborating and engaging with a wide range of stakeholders including security issues.
“This has resulted in the achievement of the enviable status and recognition we enjoy as the most secured state in the country.”
