Aiyedatiwa emphasized that Ondo State is currently one of the most peaceful states in Nigeria. He noted that the discussions held with the Man O’War team would further bolster the state government’s ongoing efforts to secure lives and property.

“The state will partner with you on your commendable initiatives for Ondo State. Our administration will provide assistance in areas of your need with the resources available.”

“The governor is committed to ensuring the security of our students. This collaboration will also promote discipline among students, reducing instances of children roaming the streets during school hours,” Omojuwa added.

Earlier in his remarks, the National Commander of Man O’War, Adedamola Gbenga, who led the team, stated, “We are here today to pledge our support to the government and the good people of Ondo State. 

“Man O’War is a voluntary organization that renders security services and voluntary community development programs. We are here to register our support for the government and the people of Ondo State.”

Gbenga elaborated on their initiatives, saying, “We are here to inform His Excellency about some of our projects and programs that need to be executed in Ondo State, such as the Operation Stay in School program. This initiative aims to provide security for secondary schools and higher institutions in Nigeria.”

“We have discussed this, and once the governor returns, we are ready and willing to offer this support to the government and the people of Ondo State.”

In attendance were Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters, Smart Omodunbi, and other dignitaries.
