According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde, has donated 23 security vehicles to the members of operation burst across the state.
Makinde stated this on Friday while handing over operational security vehicles to men and officers of the state ‘Swift Response Squad’ and Operation Burst at a brief event held at the Government House.
“This is a period irrespective of what people have been doing from the beginning of the year till now, they still want to have a merry Christmas but there are people out there who didn’t sow anything but want to reap where they didn’t sow.”
“Yes, we have had a challenging year, COVID-19 from the beginning of the year, then the economic meltdown and the ENDSARS protest. We won’t because of these challenges not do what we are suppose to do.
“I want let the men and officers of the Nigeria Police serving in Oyo State Command to know that we will continue to support them, their families. It’s unfortunate what happened during the ENDSARS protest, like the CP said, we have to put all of these behind us and then let us face the challenges ahead.”
“Officers and men are going to be in charge of these vehicles, they will be the ones to put their lives on the line to go out there to fight crime.
So, what is the most important for us is the welfare of officers that are involved here both at the Operation Burst and Swift Response Squad.”
