By Friday Omosola

Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has lauded church leaders in the state for complying with government directives on the compulsory installation of Close Circuit Television(CCTV) cameras in their churches and public places. Akeredolu stated this at the Agape International Church 34th Annual Convention 2022, held in Akure.

Recall that the Governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary(CPS), Richard Olatunde, announced the extension of the enforcement of compulsory installation of Close Circuit Television (CCTV) devices in all public places in the state to September 1, 2022. The extension was sequel to appeals from churches, mosques and other public centres to enable them to put in place necessary measures as contained in the State Executive Order.

The Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum, also used the occasion to thank God for the arrest of attackers of St. Francis Catholic Church Owo, saying it is a prayer answered. He further charged the congregation and all residents of the state to always be security conscious and be alert.
