ABEOKUTA - Governors of the south west of Nigeria on Monday vowed to deal ruthlessly with anybody who may want to truncate the peaceful coexistence of the region. 

Rising from their strategic meeting held in Ondo State, the governors agreed to reorganize the Security architecture in their various states to address the security challenges facing their region.

Speaking journalists shortly after the closed door meeting, the chairman, South West Governors Forum and Governor of Ondo state, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu noted that they would leave no stone unturned at ensuring that the security architecture of the region was redesigned to make the region a no go area for criminals.

Akeredolu said, the Governors have unanimously agreed to take immediate actions by keying into areas recommended by the technical report of the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria with a promise that the security architecture of the region would be changed from what was currently obtainable.

He also urged the people of the region to be calm and be patient with governors of the region, promising that they would take bold steps to stem the tide of insecurity and deal ruthlessly with  anyone within the South Western space caught perpetrating any form of criminal acts.

"We want the people that are concerned to wake up to see the action,there  is no way we can be here and discuss security and they wont do anything, they will take steps, and we are assuring our people that we are prepared and we will deal ruthlessly with anybody who is here within our space to commit any criminal act, " he said.

Speaking on the death of daughter of Pa. Reuben Fasoranti, Mrs. Olufunke Olakunri, the Ondo state governor, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu assured that they would get to the root of the evil act that claimed the life of Mrs. Olakunri and others, noting that the perpetrators would not go unpunished.

He also noted that they were in support of the position of the Kano State Governors stand to  bring an end to nomadism, adding that the practice should not be encouraged at this point in time.

"All of us here, we are in support of the position of the governor of Kano State who  made it clear over and over that we should ban nomadism, he said that the time has come to ban nomadism, that is a profound statement from a Fulani man who felt convinced that these thing should stop. Nomadism is not something we can encourage at this age and time, so we rise and we will continue to support the position of Governor Ganduje," he said.
