LSSTF holds 16th town hall meeting on security Thursday
The Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) will on Thursday, November 24, 2022, hold its 16th yearly town hall meeting on security with the governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, at the Civic Centre, Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Lagos.
This year’s town hall meeting will take a retrospective look at the current administration’s developmental strides across all spheres of governance, particularly in the area of security.
According to the Executive Security/CEO of the Fund, Dr. Abdurrazaq Balogun, the issues of insecurity has been a major concern in the country and by extension Lagos “and while security is under the purview of the Federal Government, the ingenuity of the state to mitigate crime to ensure its residents continue to enjoy safety and thriving business in a seemingly conducive environment is worthy of note.
“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 2023 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 meeting 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,” he said.
