Ahmed Usman Ododo

Governor Ahmed Usman Ododo, has reiterated his commitment to prioritizing the security of lives and property in the state.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Ismaila Isah, Ododo’s special adviser on media, said the governor spoke on Saturday after a meeting with chairpersons of the LGAs in the state.

The governor said the security architecture in the state has yielded positive results in the fight against violent crimes, and must be sustained to ensure peace and stability in the state.

“Given the successes recorded by the immediate past administration of my predecessor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, in taming the menace of insecurity in the state, we must continue to accord top priority to the security of lives and property of the people,” Ododo said.

“We cannot afford to drop from the height we have attained in securing the lives and property of our people as a result of desperate attempts by a few unpatriotic elements who may want to undermine our collective resolve to keep our state safe and secure.

“I have restated my commitment to the local government chairmen that security remains my first priority and we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to secure every inch of Kogi State and this is not negotiable.”

Ododo asked local government chairpersons to redouble their efforts to secure all communities within their domains.
