The Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko, during a prayer meeting on the first day of work in Akure, condemned the killings in Southern Kaduna, warning that shedding innocent blood could further worsen Nigeria’s economic situation.
“We cannot be praying for economic progress if we continue to shed the blood of innocent people. We should thank God for the handing-over of the Boko Haram flag to the President,” Mr. Mimiko said.
Mimiko also noted that the handing over of the Boko Haram flag belonging to the leader of the sect Abubakar Shekau, is a major milestone in the war against terrorism in Nigeria.
He also prayed that the insurgency ends in the new year.
According to Mimiko who appreciated his workers for the success of his administration in the last eight years, the prevailing peace in Ondo is his greatest achievement as governor of Ondo State.
