Oyo State governor, Engr Seyi Makinde, is host to 12 former Inspectors General of Police (IGPs), under the aegis of the Committee of Retired Inspectors General of Police.

 


The retired IGPs have converged in Ibadan, the state capital, for a three-day retreat which is currently ongoing.



The former IGPs are meeting at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan to brainstorm on how they can contribute strategically to effective policing in the country.




Governor Makinde said the decision of the Committee to hold the maiden edition of the retreat in Ibadan was an attestation of the pacesetting status of Oyo State.



He stated that it was proof of the good work his administration has been doing in the state in the area of security.



The governor also added that he was glad that the committee considered the state as the most desirable place to meet on the noble objective of effective policing.



“On behalf of the Government and good people of Oyo State, I welcome the Committee of Retired Inspectors General of Police to Ibadan, the capital of the Pacesetter State, as the body holds its maiden retreat, beginning from 21-23 August, 2023, at the IITA, Ibadan.



“We are glad that the revered Committee of Retired IGPs, in recognition of the excellent heritage and pacesetting credentials of our great state, considered Oyo State as the most desirable place to meet and brainstorm on the noble objective of effective policing under the theme: “Repositioning Ex-Inspectors General of Police (IGPs) for Strategic Contributions to Effective Policing in Nigeria.



“For an administration that believes in effective policing and has been doing a great job in the security sector, this retreat is a good testament to our efforts in that sector.


Governor Makinde sent them best wishes for a fruitful deliberation.

 

One of the highlights of the retreat was the admonition from the IGP:

 

 

Great take there, IGP.
