The 17th edition of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) Annual Townhall Meeting on Security with the Governor Themed: Security Complexities and Convergence: The Lagos State Imperatives held yesterday 12th December in Lagos. The meeting which is open to a virtual audience, Trek Africa Newspaper can report, had a large gathering of major security stakeholders in government, corporate sector, and security chiefs physically present at the Eko hotel venue.

The Governor of Lagos state, Gov. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu excited about the noteworthy influence of the LSSTF on Lagos security took upon himself the Chief Marketing Officer role in order to drum much-needed support for the funding agency. He said: ‘I am happy that the LSSTF which started in 2007 has been maintained by all the Governors before me. I was privileged to serve as first Chairman of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF). LSSTF is been fuelled by voluntary donations. I will donate a total of 300 brand new vehicles in the course of next year 2024.’

‘While challenges persist, the security situation in Lagos is considered most stable’, Gov. Sanwo-Olu added as he took his time to drum support for the Trust Fund and pledged to continue to market the LSSTF brand.

Some of those who heeded the Governor’s call for support include Mr. Femi Otedola who gave 1billion, the Minister of State Police Affairs, Hon. Imaan Suleiman-Ibrahim who pledged N1million among other major donations.

Harping on the agency’s need for adequate funding in his welcome address at the event, Executive Secretary/CEO of LSSTF, Dr. Abdurrazaq Balogun emphasized: ‘the magnitude of assistance required by the Police may require more than N20billion yearly assuming the exchange rate and inflation remains the same which we will not. In the last 2 years, the Lagos State Police Command has received only 9 patrol vehicles from the Federal Government. This is a security agency that has over 210 formations. Mind you ideally every one of the 110 police divisions and 14 area commands should have about 10 vehicles each but presently most of them have only one or two vehicles to police the over 9000 roads and 23 million residents of Lagos state.’
