He recently revealed this while addressing the congregation at the St. Peters Anglican Cathedral Church, Aremo, Ibadan.
According to him, Oyo State is currently experiencing lots of security challenges, however, it is not peculiar to the state alone, as it is a nationwide problem.
He added that anyone politicizing security in the state and country is making a very big mistake because that should not be the case.
His words, “If there’s no Oyo State or Nigeria by 2023 because of the politicisation of security; who and what are they going to govern?”
