In his speech before the lawmakers tagged: ‘State of the State Address’, Makinde recalled last Saturday night’s attack on residents of Igangan community in Ibarapa area of the state by unknown gunmen.

The governor, who stated this in Ogbomoso during a town hall meeting in commemoration of the second anniversary of the government, held at the Soun Ogunlola Hall, Oja-Igbo, Ogbomoso, said that open grazing is illegal in the state.

He added that the challenge of understaffing in the public health sector in the state is something the administration has been trying to address, noting that ongoing intervention to build at least one well-equipped Primary Health Care Centre in each of the 351 Wards of the state is on course.

Makinde equally commissioned the upgraded Staff Clinic within the premises of the State Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan and flagged off the breast and cervical cancer screening, while also handing over nine Luxury Buses to the Oyo State Civil/Public Service for ease of transportation for the staffers.

The governor, while declaring open the 2021 Annual Conference of Nigerian Bar Association-Section on Public Interest and Development Law NBA-SPIDEL, held at the JOGOR Centre, Ibadan, said that an Executive Bill has been sent to the Oyo State House of Assembly proposing the establishment of the Office of the Public Defender.
