The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of Oorelope Local Government Area of Oyo State, Mr Samuel Okunlade, has restated the commitment of his administration to the sustenance of peace and development in communities in the local government area.
Okunlade made the pledge recently while speaking with Community News on the development he had brought to the local government area since his administration came on board.
The council boss also commended the state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, for setting the agenda of peace and development in the last few years.
He expressed the commitment of his administration to the building of infrastructure, disclosing that his government had embarked on the construction of drainages and channelisation of rivers in Obaago, Jakuta and Modeke areas of Igboho, among others.
Okunlade further noted that the local government area would work with all security agencies to ensure that recent developments in the town such as the death of the Alepata of Igboholand and subsequent succession moves as well as the gruesome murder of the member representing Oorelope State Constituency in the state House of Assembly, Dr Gideon Aremu, are not allowed to degenerate into disaffection and breach of peace in Igboho and environs.
According to him, “the resolve of the local government area and the people to ensure that peace reign supreme must not be broken by recent developments.”
He called on all parties involved to conduct themselves in peaceful and orderly manner and not take laws into their hands.
