Lagos State government, through the Ministry of Youth and Social Development, has concluded plans to hold its second edition of the Police and Youth Dialogue with the theme: ‘The Police, Youth and The Law: Strategic Collaborations for A Safer Lagos’.

The dialogue session, according to the Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, Mr. Olusegun Dawodu, is scheduled to hold from Tuesday, January 10 to Friday, January 20, 2023 in all the five administrative divisions of the state, with relevant stakeholders including youths and officers of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos Command expected to attend.

According to Dawodu, “As a proactive government, the Sanwo-Olu administration understands the indispensable role of youths in enhancing and sustaining the security of life and property in a cosmopolitan city like Lagos. This explains why the approval of the Police Youth Dialogue was given in 2021 when the maiden edition was held.

“To further strengthen the collaboration and engagement between the Police and the youths, our proactive Governor, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu gave approval for the second edition, where the dialogue will be held in all the five administrative divisions of the state.”

The Police Youth Dialogue was one of the initiatives of the present administration of Sanwo-Olu to nip in the bud any situation that could snowball into crisis by creating a platform that promotes mutual trust and friendly relationship between the Police and the youths in Lagos State.
