Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu is set to sign into law a bill for the establishment of the Ondo State Security Trust Fund, as part of the efforts to ensure adequate security across the state.
This was contained in a statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, on Monday.
He explained that signing the bill into law would further consolidate the efforts of the governor in securing the lives and property of the people of the state.
The statement added, “Recall that the Governor had signed the bill establishing the Ondo State Security Network, codenamed ‘Amotekun,’ into law in his first tenure in office and also recently assented to the anti-open grazing bill among several other steps taken by his administration to ensure maximum security of the people of the state.
“The State Security Trust Fund Bill, when signed into law, will, among several other objectives, sustain the gains already recorded on security in the state and enable the government to source for fund outside its limited resources to strengthen the state’s security architecture.”
