As part of the activities of his administration in addressing the spate of insecurity in Ikorodu Local Government, Hon Wasiu Adeshina has donated two patrol vehicles to the Nigeria Police, Ikorodu Division on Monday, 24th May, 2021.
In his speech at the event, Adeshina noted that, ‘efforts must be made to keep our youths busy with productive skills and activities that will keep them busy’.
‘Kidnapping, ritual killings and armed robbery which were once alien to our society has now become common place. We cannot afford to fold our arms and do nothing, while the Federal and State government are deploying CCTV cameras and other efforts towards curbing insecurity in the country’.
‘Peace and security are like Siamese twins, without them, there cannot be progress and development in our community. The multinational companies will not come and invest in our local government once there is insecurity’, he added.
‘We cannot leave the welfare and support needed by the police in the hands of the federal and state government alone, this is the reason we are here today. As a government, we have realized that, without a means of mobility, it will be difficult for our security agents to carry out surveillance’, he concluded.
The chairman however appealed to the policemen to ensure they use the vehicles for the purpose of patrol and surveillance which was the reason they were procured and not use them for other purposes, like carrying of passengers.
Responding, DPO, Ikorodu Division Igbogbo Road; Omisakin stated that, ‘what we are witnessing today is unprecedented. Our chairman is undaunting and an indefatigable personality. With the donation of these serviceable patrol buses, he has made our job easier. We will make maximum and adequate use of the vehicles’, he promised.
An APC chieftain, Alh Enifeni described Hon Adeshina as a sensitive leader, who moves gallantly around the community while addressing the challenges. He submitted by endorsing the chairman for a second term in office.
Similarly, Baale of Ojogbe, Chief Olomo commended the chairman for donating the patrol vehicles, stating that it was a step in the right direction, as it will assist the police in the discharge of their constitutional duties.
