The Governor made this known while officially flagging off the state residents registration exercise at the executive council chamber, Governor’s office, Agodi, Ibadan.

In his remarks, the Special Assistant to the Governor on ICT and E-governance, Bayo Akande Jnr, said beyond providing adequate data for planning and budgeting, data gathered could also help address challenges of insecurity, noting that an elaborate media campaign and sensitization to increase awareness will soon come up in the state.

He equally stressed that the registration exercise would cut across all local government areas in the state, as well as various sectors.
