As part of efforts to beef up security in the state, the Ondo State Government has mandated the installation of Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in all public facilities and private institutions in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by Richard Olatunde, the Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.





Akeredolu, according to the statement, signed an “Executive Order” ordering the compulsory installation of CCTV in institutions across the state.
It was necessitated by the need to ensure the security of lives and properties.
The statement reads, “The executive order shall be enforced at all religious places of worship, financial institutions (of all kinds), event centres, supermarkets, educational institutions (Schools), Hotels/Motels, Guest House, inns, Restaurants, Clinics and Health Centres, eateries (of all kinds), recreation or vehicular parks and other places regularly used by the public.
