Lagos govt promises residents security, safety

NEWS DIGEST – Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised to stop at nothing to make Lagos State remain safe and secure for the residents.

Sanwo-Olu said his administration would ensure that Lagos became a state to be proud of.

The governor stated this at the 3rd Session of the 34th Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Lagos, Church of Nigeria, held at Our Saviour’s Anglican Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.

He said, “Talking about security, we can say Lagos is relatively better, but 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. 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.

“In this month of May, you will see extensive pronouncements in that regard. 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; 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 of.”

Sanwo-Olu, who donated N25m to support the synod, said the state government would be supporting the hosting of the standing committee of the Church of Nigeria in September.
