In this current lockdown which is a drastic way to curb the spread of the deadly COVID-19 Virus, the National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) commends the commissioner of Police Lagos State Command, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, for his swift and effective handling of situations regarding security and community policing in Lagos State.

Alh. Abdullahi Inuwa, NARTO Spokesperson & Chieftain, says the Rapid Response actions and adopted strategies by Mr. Hakeem Odumosu in the state have created a state of confidence in minds of Lagos residents and thus created a trust in Nigerian Police.

His assertion, “Except for the fact that CP ODUMOSU had earlier gave a hard blow on criminal gangs and cult groups in Lagos, as well as the environs before the lockdown, it could have been disastrous and unbearable for residents, even investors to live in peace”.

He pointed out, “CP ODUMOSU may have devised strategies he gained as leader of the Presidential Task Force Enforcement team on Lagos Traffic decongestion to uncover hideouts of criminal elements in the State and its environs.”

He enthused, “That national assignment prepared him to act very fast as Lagos Police Boss in smashing criminals gangs and preventing them from taking over Lagos communities.

“These gangs could not strike at will to terrorise Lagos residents due to the proactiveness of the CP and his men”.

 

 

 

 

The Vice-chairman emphasized that the recent confidence-building tour of various communities in Lagos by the Commissioner in the company of AIG Zone 2, and DIG from Abuja Police Headquarters, further helped to dispel the fear of attacks by criminal gangs and panic due to uncertainty.

However, he advised the Police authorities not to rest on their oars but to be alert, as many residents hardly sleep at night, in order to protect their respective communities from hoodlums attack.

Alhaji Inuwa Abdullai also hailed President Buhari’s aggressive policy on agriculture, which led to the closure of land borders against rice importation.

He said, “The lockdown has shown that Nigerians are now capable of feeding themselves because many people have gone back to the farm, in response to Buhari’s call on Nigerians to look inwards for food production. That is why there is no food shortage during this lockdown period”.

The NARTO Chief added, “President Buhari’s foresight in compelling Nigerians to feed themselves has paid off at this time of adversity.
“It could have been catastrophic for us as a nation if we were to depend on food importation when other countries were also on lockdown”.

The President, however, said Nigeria was addressing the threat by re-dedicating efforts towards economic diversification, focusing on agriculture and the mining sectors.

‘’Nigeria has made good strides in Sustainable Development Goals domestication processes, as we have begun the re-alignment of the National Statistical System and indicators of the SDGs.

‘’We have developed a novel home-grown ‘Integrated Sustainable Development Goals Model, as an analytical framework for measuring how policy making can address the indivisible nature of the Sustainable Development Goals.

‘’Nigeria has also set up a Model Private Sector Advisory Group and SDGs Donors’ Forum with the aim of engaging critical stakeholders towards the attainment of the SDGs,” he said.
