Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu’s has as part of the efforts to ameliorate the effect of the removal of the Petroleum subsidy extended palliatives to Officers of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency.
The General Manager of the Agency, Prince Dr Ifalade Oyekan FISN, while overseeing the distribution of the palliative to Non-commissioned Officers of the Agency, expressed delight at the various efforts of the Governor aimed at ensuring Officers of the Agency serve residents and visitors to Lagos State effectively and efficiently.
Ifalade implored the Officers to remember that the palliatives are part of the motivation for a better and more efficient Officer Corp and reciprocate the gesture with dedication and commitment to manifest the safer Lagos vision of the Governor.
He said, “You need to realize that Lagos State has several Agencies and putting you among the priority cadre should motivate you to work with dedication and commitment. A safer Lagos which is the dream of Mr. Governor is achievable and that is why this government puts your welfare at the top of its list of needs, just as it expects you to put the good people and their safety at the top of your priority as Officers.
”Some of the Officers who spoke at the presentation commended Prince Oyekan for his zeal at rebranding the Agency and thanked Mr. Governor for the palliatives. One of the Officers said, “It’s quite amazing the way the Governor treats our Agency. We are one of the Agencies that gets constant attention from him at all critical times; providing necessary tools for our work, improving the welfare and commending our work.
A female Officer said, “I am short of words. I am just short of words. This to many people may look like a token, but I can’t tell you how this will help me as a single mother with an aged mother to feed at home. Thank you, our dear Governor,”.
The distribution will be done in batches, starting from the most vulnerable.
