According to the governor, people should only see the reopening of the borders as a mark of the Federal Government’s commitment to the development of the country.
“We are very happy that the Federal Government has reopened some land borders, among these borders are the Idi-Iroko borders, here in Ogun. I enjoin us all to please cooperate with law enforcement agencies, we should not engage in illicit activities, such illegal activities do a lot of damage to our economy,” he noted.
While appealing to security agencies to see the people as partners in progress and ensure that they avoid the loss of lives and property that usually come with clashes between security agencies and the people, Abiodun, who also urged the people of the state and the country as a whole to understand that they have a great responsibility as a people to the overall development of the nation, urged eligible voters to get their Permanent Voter’s Card as well as participate fully in the forthcoming elections.
