Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has pledged to acquire intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platform, a specialized light aircraft, to secure creeks and riverine communities in the State.
He disclosed this on Monday ,when he received Commanders of Armed Forces formations in the State on courtesy visit.
According to him,general welfare of the people remains a top priority for his administration.
“Lagos is a cosmopolitan State and no matter how much efforts or resources government is putting in place, if there are no leg runners to execute those resources or even use them effectively, we will not be talking about peace.
“My aim is to ensure that every Lagosian sleeps and wake up comfortable and whatever it takes for us to do that is through the utmost cooperation of security agencies and I believe that you will offer that and as we move Lagos forward, it will have positive impact on Nigeria as a whole because everything good that happens in Lagos, is a reflection of what is happening in Nigeria.”
While assuring that the State Government would not relent in supporting security agencies with critical infrastructure and logistics to enhance their job, the Governor also urged them to continue to put the equipment procured for them into good use for the overall security and comfort of the people.
