Salako-Oyedele, an engineer, said the state had been a force to reckon with in human capacity development in Nigeria, assuring that government would continue to improve the welfare of citizenry as well as ensure their protection at all times.
“I’m sure we can work together and incorporate the services you can offer to the members of the public and the state at large on different training programmes,” she stated.
On security, the deputy governor said, the present administration was passionate at ensuring the security of the state was guaranteed for improved economic growth, noting that plans were at advanced stage to reinvigorate the Security Trust Fund, to make sure all security agencies are well equipped to carry out their work.
“Be assured that you have a governor who would ensure the security of lives and property, peaceful coexistence of individuals and government are guaranteed,” she assured.
