Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has presented staff and instrument of office to the Alaawe of Aawe, Oba Cornelius Taiwo Oladokun.

The governor made the presentations on Friday.

DAILY POST reports that Makinde had earlier presented staff of office to Onifiditi of Fiditi in the same local government area a few days ago.

While presenting the items, he charged the monarch to collaborate with the government to improve security in his domain.

Makinde, who spoke through his Deputy, Barrister Bayo Lawal, said his administration had done something unprecedented in Afijio Local Government by presenting a staff of office to Oladokun, who mounted the throne in 1991.

He noted that there was the need for adequate security in the state in order to sustain the progress and development that his government had brought urging the Alaawe and other traditional rulers to collaborate with the government on intelligence gathering.

“Today’s event is a combination of activities that have begun between 1991 and today. The Alaawe mounted the throne in 1991 but the staff of office is being given this afternoon. We thank God Almighty for sparing our lives, particularly the lives of Oba Oladokun and his queens to witness this occasion.

“Within 48 hours, the Oyo State Government has performed wonders in Afijio Local Government. We presented a staff of office to the Onifiditi within this local government. And, today, we are presenting a staff of office to Oba Oladokun here in Aawe.

“We need adequate security for the enhancement of progress and development that we want to see here, which our government has been ensuring.

“Let us work together in the aspect of intelligence gathering, as the issue of security is not all about carrying guns.

“The second thing we need here is cooperation, especially amongst the traditional rulers. To experience development without cooperation would not be easy.

“So, I want our fathers, who are seated here, to cooperate with the traditional rulers so that we can progress in this local government and at the state level too.”
