In the area of human resource development towards achieving appropriate security architecture in Nigeria, Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has assured of his administration’s continuous support for security agencies.

Governor Abiodun represented by his deputy, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele noted that the efforts of the committee in ensuring all-round development of the National Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) Academy, Staff Colleges and Schools towards improving the performances of its men were in line with his vision in the state government.
“The Ogun State Government has a very good relationship with NSCDC and we appreciate the role it plays in our security architecture, its cooperation has been invaluable. Be rest assured that we will continue to support the development of your men and officers, as they go about the discharge of their duties,” the governor said.

Obene appreciated the state government for its giant stride on security service delivery, advising the government to increase its budget for security agencies in the state to enable them to perform optimally.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Governor, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele, has described members of the Freelance Independent Broadcaster Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) as an integral part of the success of any government, saying it played a vital role in the sensitisation of the people.
