Lagos State Governor Akinwumi Ambode has donated 120 5KVA generators to Police stations across Lagos State to enable them work optimally at their job of safeguarding lives and property in the state.

The generators were presented at the Lagos House in Ikeja with Ambode represented by the Chairman of Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF), Mr Oye-Hassan Odukale.

The governor in his speech said:

Lagos State is the safest State and we hope to make the State to be among the safest States in Africa which is our objective at the Fund. Anything about security is given high priority by our administration. Lagosians are now feeling safe. The safety that we are experiencing don’t come cheap but I like to assure that at the Fund, we are always willing to move at any time to ensure that we keep Lagos safe

    Even ambode has envisaged that there’s no hope for the light situation in nigeria.

    I can’t stand when articles read “The Government DONATED or a representative of the government DONATED, what does that even mean???

    You donate when it’s from your personal asset, but when you are doing your job or allocating resources of the state its not a donation……

    When we use the correct terms, it changes the mindset of the readers and consequently, the government is held to a higher standard. Well, maybe it’s just me that sees it that way!

      I agree with you that a government doing what it’s supposed to do is not charity, but rather its duty. But what I have previously heard about the lagos state security trust fund is, its funded by corporate bodies (I.e banks, oil companies etc) and the state government, also the state has no power over the police (even though we are supposed to be running a federal government system) so it’s not under the states primary responsibility to provide funds to the police, so this can be termed a donation. This is also done for publicity reasons and to garner favor from the police hierarchy. Correct me if I’m wrong.

      You couldn’t have put it in a better way darling. Nigeria is the way it is because we the citizens have such little expectations of our leaders and will celebrate them at the least opportunity that presents itself to us.

    Well it’s a donation because in Nigeria we don’t expect anything from politicians we voted in so when they do their jobs we applaud them like it’s a big deal. And it’s also a donation cause he just dashed some police families gen for Christmas lol

    @Angel Eyes I lived in Togo for two years and only experienced a power outage twice lasting no longer than an hour in total. Togo was the first country I lived in Africa, I didn’t know about power cuts until I moved to Nigeria.
