The Governor represented by Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy. He noted that since the assumption to power by the present administration, peace had been restored; contrary to the violence and thuggery common to past administrations.

“We don’t and we won’t employ the services of cultists in our government. We brought peace to the state when we resumed and we shall not relapse to era of violence in Ogun State,” Amosun said.

The event was marked with a walk along major streets of the town by members of both groups who also distributed handbills to motorists, passers by and residents to sensitise them on the importance of peace.
