The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, Taiwo Adisa has set the records straight on the criticisms trailing the the newly commissioned Mobile Police Squadron (MOP 73) at Ago Are on Wednesday, 27 2020 by Governor Seyi Makinde.

“According to the Governor’s spokesperson he said, “it is not true to say that the Mobile Squadron base (MOP 72), was relocated from Oyo to Ago Are. That’s not the situation.”

“The truth is that Governor Seyi Makinde sought and got the approval for the Mobile base from the Inspector General of Police for Oke Ogun, during one of his trips to Abuja in August 2019.”

“The Mobile Base approved by the Inspector General of Police and was specifically meant for Oke Ogun and not any other part of Oyo State.”

“Though Oyo State is big enough to accommodate many more Mobile Bases, but there should be no confusion about Ago Are.”

“The opposition is apparently trying to divert attention from the monumental and unprecedented achievements recorded by Governor Seyi Makinde in his first 365 days in office.”

“They don’t need to cause disaffection among communities because the governor has assured all that he will spread development evenly across the zones of the state.”

“Remember the essence is also to enhance safety of Agriculture and Oke Ogun is really a veritable agriculture base and food basket of Oyo State.”
