Makinde Tours Ibarapa, sleeps over to feel the pulse of the people.

The governor, who stated this while speaking in Igbo Ora, said that he feels the pains of the people of the area and that the visit would enable him to find lasting solutions to the lingering insecurity issues in the area.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as saying these while addressing council chairpersons and political office holders from Ibarapa Central, Ibarapa East and Ibarapa North, in Igbo Ora, late on Sunday.

He stated that the state has approved the setting up of Peace and Security Committee at the local government levels, adding that the state government would put in place other security measures to ensure peace in the area.
