The Ogun state government has faulted claims of inviting popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho to help curb insecurity in the state.
Recall that the activist who arrived in Ogun state yesterday had hinted at being invited by Governor Dapo Abiodun.
However reacting to this, Ogun state commissioner for information and strategy, Abdulwaheed Odusile affirmed that the state government did not invite Igboho.
He also alleged that 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 the 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.”
