Commenting on the upgrade of the College to the university, the Speaker of the Assembly, Timothy Owoeye said, “Now that the Bill has been passed into law, the Governor may appoint a working Committee to see to the making of the University anytime from now.”
Speaking on the rising insecurity in the state, Owoeye charged the youth not to allow politicians to use them as agents of destruction.
Owoeye in a statement by his Press Secretary, Kunle Alabi, also enjoined parents and guardians to ensure that their wards were not engaged to destroy the peace of the state.
The Speaker, who made reference to the Minority leader of the House, Mr Kofoworola Adewunmi whose father’s house was torched during the weekend, stated, “I want to charge our youths not to allow themselves to be used as agents of destabilisation.
“Do not allow yourselves to be used for thuggery, you must ensure that the peace that the state is known for remains. The peace enjoyed before and during the administration of Governor Oyetola should be guarded for it not to erode the state.”
