Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday reiterated his unwavering commitment to keep Lagos safe, secured and uncomfortable for criminal elements and their collaborators.

He spoke while commissioning the newly rehabilitated fuel dump for the State Police Command. The facility, which has 33,000 litres capacity for both diesel and premium motor spirit (petrol), was rehabilitated by the State Government for the purpose of dispensing fuel to vehicles used for patrol and surveillance activities by the police in the state.
Governor Ambode, who was represented by the Commissioner for Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Relations, Mr. Oluseye Oladejo, said provision of the facility was in line with his administration’s determination to further enhance security of lives and property in the state.
He said: “Since our inauguration, we have left nobody in doubt about our commitment to keep our State safe and secured. We have demonstrated commitment to this course through massive investment and the provision of modern security equipment to strengthen the crime fighting capacity of security agencies, especially the State Police Command.
“Till date, we have empowered security agencies with 100 saloon cars, 195 Ford Ranger Pick-Ups, 10 Toyota Land Cruiser Hilux and several others.
“These were provided with the main objective of facilitating mobility of officers within the nooks and crannies of the state.
“With this dedicated facility, the State Government has once again made a clear statement of its determination to make Lagos uncomfortable for criminals and their collaborators.”
The Governor said he was not oblivious of the fact that the major requirement for efficient running of vehicles is regular fuel supply and maintenance. Such, he said, necessitated the approval he gave for the revamping of the old and dilapidated fuel dump at the State Police Command.
While expressing delight at the completion of the rehabilitation and handing over to the police, Ambode urged the State Command to ensure adequate monitoring, as well as usage of the fuel only for the purpose intended.
The, Governor assured the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, of the readiness of the State Government to sufficiently service the facility for a 24/7 mobility of security vehicles.
Earlier, Owoseni thanked Governor Ambode for once again demonstrating that he is a worthy partner, adding that the commissioning and handing over of the facility was a milestone to the police.
His words: “The State Government has been at the forefront of supporting us both in terms of equipment and logistics. On behalf of the Inspector General of Police, I want to specially thank Governor Ambode and the State Government for supporting us in fueling the vehicles provided for us.
“We want to assure the good people of Lagos that we recognise that to whom much is given, much is expected. We will reciprocate this kind gesture by redoubling our efforts in other to make Lagos safer and more secured.”
