Today, we visited Ogbomoso to see the families of three of our children who died during the End SARS protest; We began the process of compensating the families for the losses they suffered and promised to do more in the coming days. Our hearts go out to all those who have suffered directly and indirectly during these protests. As a government, we will not forget the last few days in a hurry nor the needless deaths os Isiaka Jimoh, Ganiyu Alabi, and Adeoye Taiwo.

 We were also at the Palace of Kabiyesi, Oba Oyewumi Ajagunbade III, the Son of Ogbomoso. We pledged the sum N100 Million to begin immediate repairs of the palace ans replacement of destroyed properties.   We told Kabiyesi not to hold what has happened against our children. Although regretted, all that took place was a result of years of failure of governance which we are working to correct. We accepted Kabiyesi's prayers for a better Nigeria and a better Oyo state.

We also spoke with our children in ogbomoso, we assured them that their agitations were not unfonded. But that we needed to remain peaceful even in protest. We assured them that we were doing all in our power to attack the root casuse of these protest. We returned to the secretariat in Ibadan to speak with our other children who had been waiting all day. We reassured them that these protests are a wake-up call to all. We pledged to do better to meet the needs of our young peole, especially for employment and a safer environment.

I informed them that our General and commissioner for Justice, Professor Oyelowo Oyewo, would work with the Commissioner of Polie in Oyo state to ensure that all those who where arrested during the End SARS protest are released without being charged.
