According to the governor, people should only see the reopening of the borders as a mark of the Federal Government's commitment to the development of the country.

"We are very happy that the Federal Government has reopened some land borders, among these borders are the Idi-Iroko borders, here in Ogun. I enjoin us all to please cooperate with law enforcement agencies, we should not engage in illicit activities, such illegal activities do a lot of damage to our economy," he noted.

He appealed to security agencies to ensure that they continue to see the people as partners in progress and ensure that they avoid the loss of lives and property that usually come with clashes between security agencies and the people.

Abiodun who also charged the people of the state and the country as a whole to understand that they have great responsibility as a people to the overall development of the nation, urged eligible voters to get their Permanent Voter's Card as well as participate fully in the forth coming elections.

"We are gradually getting into the next season of political activities, as we prepare for the 2023 general elections, all eligible voters should get their permanent voter's cards as voting during elections is our civic duty. It is the least you can do, people get the government they say that they deserve, if you do not vote, it means you do not have a say in those that govern you and more importantly those that represent you", he added.

He further urged the people to use their power rightly by voting in credible leaders, saying voters shouldn't allow themselves to be deceived or used by unscrupulous politicians.

The governor who  acknowledged the calmness, disposition and sincerity of the Olu of Ilaro, described  the monarch as a true representation of royalty that has continued to contribute towards the success of his administration.
