It will also review the security system in the state and work with security agencies on improving the security structure of the state.

So, let’s get started with this, shall we? Whatever recommendation the committees make, I really hope the governor-elect won’t try to get out of being responsible for it. After he has taken the oath of office, it is imperative that they immediately get to work in the state of Osun.
