In his words, "the little chances created by the politicians to cause security breaches has become wider and spread across the nation which cannot be resolved for years.

"During most elections, thugs are encouraged to perform their hooliganism instead of cautioning them. After the campaign the thugs becomes useless on the street and cause havoc.

"It is obvious that most of the security challenges facing the country today needed political solution rather than guns and bullets. It's a general belief that most the security challenges are created by political leaders who are over ambitious in one way or the other" he concluded.

Oginni therefore advised the Ogun state government to make use of the presentation and lectures for the betterment of the security network in the state.

Olubori while addressing members of different political parties present at the inaugural lecture expantiated more on the roles of political parties in the development of the State.

 "A winner must emerge, that's the beauty of a race. Our political platform won but runs an all inclusive government . I am appreciative of the combined effort of political parties who played maturely during and after the general election that made APC, the ruling party and creating a crisis-less environment for development to thrive by posing an healthy rivarlry.

"Politics is the most potent part of power and with power you can influence so many things chief of which is security. If we fail to do that, to secure the lives and properties of our people, for them to be free from anxiety, fear and danger, the message is; leaders need to be aware when they are facing such situation. There is no where in the world where revolution are planned, it is a spontaneous reaction".
