Abiodun also announced plans to set up a special task force to address cultism in tertiary insitutions and other parts of the state.

“I am setting up a special task force on cultism because we are working towards making this state the number one state in this country, and any attempt to undermine that by way of cultism is an act of sabotage and we will put an end to it,” he said.

“This is an agrarian local government, I am committed to advancing the cause of agriculture in this local government. I am investing in agriculture because, not only do you have the land, you have land in abundance and also close to Lagos.”
