Makinde, while calling for the sustenance of the cordial relationship, promised that his government would continue to provide the necessary support for DSS and other security agencies.

Earlier, Agada assured the governor that the agency would continue to do its best in securing the state.

“The service is expanding and thank God that the National Assembly had approved that we need more recruitment.

“Between 2020 and now, Oyo State alone has about 78 new officers: senior and junior officers.

“Another batch is doing its cadet training now and, in the next three to four months; they should be through and then, we will get additional hands to join the train.

“So, we are expanding; and the more we have, the more we will do,” Agada stated.

Meanwhile, Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has said that governors are not afraid of direct primaries; amid speculations that some governors have determined the political fate of federal lawmakers from their states.

Yahaya Bello made these claims during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, November 11.

“We as governors, I don’t think anybody is afraid of direct primaries. No governor, not APC, PDP, or APGA; At least these are the parties that we have today,” Governor Yahaya Bello said.

“I will always caution that whenever we are making laws or taking decisions; we shouldn’t be basing it on the impulse of the moment.”
