The Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin LGA, Comrade Valentine Buraimoh chaired the peace and security meeting at the Council Secretariat, Festac Town, Lagos today.
Briefing newsmen shortly after the meeting, Comrade Buraimoh said the meeting was called to get reports from all security agencies, with a view of addressing it.
According to the Local Government boss, the meeting also looked at the black spots, bad roads, blocked drainages and other security challenges in the community.
In his speech, Comrade Buraimoh noted that “the current security situation in the country is precarious”, noting that “we have to put all proactive and workable measures to combat any form of unseen security breach”.
He beckoned on all to make it a point of duty to regularly intimate all the relevant security operatives of any suspicious character in their domain.
The Local Government boss also constituted a strategic committee to look into issues of security and environmental black spots.
The committee is headed by a former Chairman of the Local Government, Prince Rasheed Otolorin. Members are drawn from the Nigeria Police, Nigeria Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), DSS, the Legal Officer of the Local Government and the Chief Security Officer of the Local Government.
In his remarks, the immediate past Chairman of the local government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale, re-iterated that Amuwo Odofin LGA is very strategic and viable for business opportunities, adding that all hands must be on deck to regain the glory the local government is known for.
