Obasa To Police: You Must Treat Every Lagosian With Respect, Dignity

 

 

 

 

Dr. Obasa said this on the floor of the House when the lawmakers honored the outgoing Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, who has been promoted to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police and is due to retire in January 2022.

 

 

 

 

 

Obasa said Odumosu was honored as the first commissioner of police in the state to stand before the lawmakers in the hallowed chamber and address Lagosians on his experience and issues with policing Lagos because he is considered to have effectively managed the security of the state.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Speaker thanked Odumosu for his openness and responsiveness each time issues were affecting the peace of the state.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“It is important to call on those behind you to know that the relationship between the police and the people need to be constantly improved upon,” Obasa said adding that men of the Nigeria Police Force needed to build more trust among the people and make the latter know they are truly being served.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Everybody must be treated with respect, dignity, and honor and that is how we can earn our respect. Policing should not be about harassment and extortion but building trust among the people and making them comfortable,” Obasa advised.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Commissioner of Police, who led a team of officers to the House, thanked the lawmakers for their support. According to him, nothing could have been achieved in terms of security and peace in the State without the assistance of the House led by Speaker Obasa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said he would remain grateful to Lagos and Lagosians for making it possible for him and his team to effectively manage the security of the state and make it the most peaceful in the country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Odumosu, who described Lagos as a mini-Nigeria, noted that the proactiveness of the Lagos Assembly resulted in the laws that have helped the police remain successful in the state.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said the Cultism Prohibition Law, has helped to reduce illegal associations in tertiary institutions in the state and also helped with adequate enlightenment of property owners and residents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He listed other laws that have helped the police to include the Land Use Charge amendment law which has reduced the activities of land grabbers, the Anti-Open Grazing Law, the Neighborhood Safety Corps law, which has ensured synergy among security agencies, the Coronavirus Pandemic Law, which enforcement helped reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Transport Sector Amendment law, which has helped with traffic management and the law stopping parade of suspects to protect their fundamental rights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We promise to continue to excel in providing water-tight security for the people of the state,” he told the lawmakers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

He also promised that he would encourage his successor to sustain the relationship between the police and the House while urging the lawmakers to extend their support to whoever will take over from him.

 

“Policing Lagos is not a tea party. Without the laws in Lagos, it would have been difficult to police the state. Don’t get tired, don’t relent in making the laws that would make Lagos state maintain its place as the most peaceful state in Nigeria,” he urged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In their contributions, the lawmakers commended Odumosu for his success adding that his experience would always be needed in the state even after his retirement.

Nigerians blame Buhari even for poor sexual performance– Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina

 

Femi Adesina, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, has said Nigerians blame his principal for everything, including bad performance in bed.

According to him, Nigerians blame Buhari because “resentment is their daily food and drink.”

 

 

 

Adesina disclosed this in his weekly article shared on his Facebook titled, ‘I Still Believe In Buhari.’

He lamented that Nigerians see the president as their “fall guy.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The article read partly: “Resentment is a poor prop for anyone to lean on, goes another saying. But not for some Nigerians. Resentment is their daily food and drink, and they heap all the problems in the country on the head of the President if it rains too much.

“Blame Buhari. It doesn’t rain at all. Buhari is the cause. A man gets to bed at night no power. Buhari oooo. The President is the fall guy for everything.”

 

 

 

 

 

He stressed that Nigerians blame Buhari for the “parlous security situation in the land.”
