Ikupolati made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Yikpata.

She expressed concern over the porous nature of the orientation camp, making it vulnerable to thieves and vandals.

Ikupolati said: “I want to appeal to the Federal Government to please construct a perimeter fence round the orientation camp to make it secure.

“If the Federal Government is determined to give Kwara orientation a camp a fence, I know it can do it.

“The Command and Staff College in Jaji is bigger than this place and it was fenced within three months; this is why I said the Federal Government can do it.

“I am not talking of doing it in stages; they can do it at once. I want them to come to the aid of the state government or to work hand in hand with the state government by way of provision of funds to the state government to do it.”
