The Lagos State Security Trust Fund holds its 16th Annual Town Hall Meeting on Security with the Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday 24th November, 2022 at the Civic Center, Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos at 11:00am with the theme “LSSTF Stewardship: A Review of our activities in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S. Agenda of the Lagos State Government”.
The main focus of this year’s Town Hall Meeting is to take a retrospective look at the current administration’s developmental strides across all spheres of governance particularly in the area of security. The issues of insecurity has been a major concern in the country and by extension Lagos State, and while security is under the purview of the Federal Government, the ingenuity of the State Government to mitigate crime in order to ensure its residents continue to enjoy safety and thriving business in a seemingly conducive environment is worthy of note.
Dr. Abdurrazaq Balogun the Executive Security/CEO of the Fund (the organization that facilitates safety and security through its support to security agencies in Lagos State) will at the meeting, render an account of its stewardship while intimating attendees at the event of its security interventions from 2019 till date. The external auditors to the Fund, Ernst and Young, will give their opinion on the 2021 audit report of the Fund while the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, Abiodun Alabi will also give a report on the activities of the Command including their challenges and achievements in the year under review.
This is an important security stakeholders meeting that will have in attendance representations from every sector of the economy and society in the state, including security chiefs, heads of safety and security agencies as well as security professionals.
Security is a collective responsibility and as such every resident and anyone with economic or social interest vested in Lagos State is a stakeholder and with the Y2023 general election fast approaching, there is need for all to come together to deliberate on strategies, policies and most importantly have a one on one with the Governor of the State to collectively chart a way forward for a sustainable and proactive security architecture that will improve the operational capacity of our security agencies in the effective discharge of their duties.
As attendance at the event is strictly by invitation, stakeholders are therefore encouraged to join the conversation live on YouTube or Facebook on Lagos State Security Trust Fund handles or @followlsstf on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #SecureLagos.
Your participation and contributions in making Lagos safer would be highly appreciated and this is in our collective best interest.
