A former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Vice Marshal Oluseyi Petinrin (retd.), has said Nigeria would soon overcome the security challenges facing it soon.
Petirin said the various reforms initiated by the Federal Government would soon bring solution to the security problems across the country.
The ex-CDS said this in Ipetu Ijesa, in Oriade Local Government Area of the state during the Aropeju Day, shortly after he was honoured with a chieftaincy title of Are Jagunmolu.
He said the Federal Government had been making efforts to address the problems but said there were obvious shortcomings that had negatively affected the security of lives and property.
He however expressed hope that various initiatives of government aimed at addressing security challenges, when fully implemented, would check the spate of insecurity.
He said, “There are several things this administration is doing regarding our security challenge. For instance, the police reform and other bills presently before the National Assembly aimed at addressing specifically, security challenges is a common commendable step.
“Government is making effort. But that is not to say there are no shortcomings. All these initiatives, by the time they are implemented, there will be peace, progress,” Petinrin said.
The monarch of the town, Oba Samson Agunbiade Oke, called on the residents to respect COVID -19 protocols. He said the virus had not disappeared , adding Nigerians should comply with the measures put in place to curb the virus in order to prevent a resurgence.
