The Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Sunday tasked citizens and residents on the need to deal justly with one another as this would help the state sustain its status as the most peaceful state in the country.
The governor said peace and security are achievable in a society where people deal justly and with fear of God among one another.
Oyetola said this at a one-day seminar for members of the Sharia Panel held at the Muslim Secretariat in Osogbo.
A statement by Ismail Omipidan, the governor’s spokesperson, on Sunday said the governor hailed the leaders of the Muslim community for cooperating with his administration and for supporting its efforts at sustaining the most peaceful status of the state.
Represented by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Abdullahi Binuyo, the governor also lauded the leadership of the Muslim community in the state for organising the seminar which he described as important as it would serve as a reminder on the need for all, particularly the participants, to adjudicate with fear of Allah.
He said the administration has put measures in place to ensure an efficient justice system in the state.
