“Call your Senators, members of the House of Representatives and State Assemblies, irrespective of their party affiliation, ask them to do something.
“Call them to support this, and when it comes to Oyo State, I can give you the assurance that the State Assembly will pass it,” the governor said.
The governor further said: “Personally, I have gone around to take responsibility for some of the issues we are faced with, security-wise. But I want to beg of you, on security, we have to take a collective responsibility. The government alone cannot do it, as all of us must come together and play our own parts.
“In your neighbourhood, if you see something, say something and the government will do something.”
Governor Makinde, who congratulated members of the Ibadan Golf Club on its 30th Anniversary, pledged that he will continue to support the club and also do more in terms of giving necessary support for sports development in Oyo State.
He said that the remodelled and reconstructed Lekan Salami Sport Complex will be opened with the Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) playing a European Team from Slovakia. He added that the match will kick off at about 8 p.m., under floodlights.
“For the first time in the history of Lekan Salami Stadium, Shooting Stars will be playing a team from Slovakia and we will be kicking off at about 8 p.m. So, we will play the game under floodlight.
“We will be watching subsequent games of the Shootings Starts under floodlights. When we are done from work, we will go home and relax and watch our darling team,” he added.
