Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has called for a constitution review in line with the peculiarities of each of the states of the federation.
Oyetola also called for establishment of community police as part of measures to curb insecurity in the country.
Speaking at a Ramadan Lecture in Osogbo Sunday, Oyetola said the time had come for the governors to be constitutionally empowered as the chief security officers of their respective states.
“I acknowledge the fact that the nation is facing serious security challenges. State policing is part of what we need to strengthen the security. Our security agencies must be properly and adequately strengthened.”
He appealed to parents to train their children in the way of God and give them quality education to become successful in life so as not to constitute security threat to others in the future.
“Part of what we need to do as parents, is to watch over our children and wards. We must give them the best education and train them with Omoluabi ethos,” the governor said.
The Chief Imam of Offa, Sheik Muyideen Salman Husayn, in his lecture, lauded Oyetola for the social intervention programmes of his administration which had “impacted greatly” on the lives of the people.
