Resident of Lagos State are to witness in this month of May, extensive policies and far-reaching support that would be given out to all security operatives for a safe, secure, prosperous State all would truly be proud of.
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu gave this assurance on Monday while speaking at the third session of the 34th Synod of the Diocese of Lagos, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) held at Our Saviour’s Anglican Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
Sanwo-Olu said, “In this month of May, you will see extensive pronouncements. You will see extensive policies and far-reaching support that would be given out to all our security operatives so that it is not just a talk show and film show.
“It is something we are committed to and we will continue to make sure that our Lagos remains safe, secure, prosperous and a place where all of you would truly be proud off.
“Talking about security, we can say Lagos is relatively better but I sit on it and I know what we are doing and the things we need to do. We know we have issues to deal with as a country and Lagos will certainly be leading that conversation because we know how critical this State is to the nation.
“This is the melting pot for our nation where anybody can come in with a lot of aspirations and do well. Lagos is a state that gives hope to a lot of
Nigerians. Lagos is a state that gives hope to all of Nigeria. So, we cannot afford anything to happen here. I can assure you with every sense of commitment that we will stop at nothing to make sure that Lagos remains safe and secure.
“We will deal with the issue of motorcycle in systematic order and to have a human face to it, we would provide credible alternatives. We cannot throw the baby and the water away. The alternatives would be properly fashioned out before end of the month of May.”
Sanwo-Olu however, appealed to citizens who have buildings that are either not completed or abandoned to get a professional security company to take them over so that they can monitor and police them well instead of leaving them open for criminals as hideouts.
