“Don’t forget that this government is not only responsible but also responsive to the yearnings of the people. Whatever action we take will always be in the interest of the people of Oyo State.

“We have succeeded, after treating and giving them proper care, in linking a majority of them with their parents while the remaining have
been sent to the state’s rehabilitation centre.”
