Bisi Yusuf charges constituents on community policing
Member representing Alimosho Constituency I, Hon. Bisi Yusuf has appealed to his constituents to take serious the issue of security, saying individuals must be ready to cooperate with security agencies to engender effective policing.
Yusuff made the call during a Constituency Stakeholders’ Meeting that was recently held simultaneously in all the 40 constituencies in the state.
The stakeholders’ meeting with the theme: “Community\Neighbourhood Policing Starts with You” was the second in the series since the 8th Assembly came on board on June, 2015.
The lawmaker, while addressing his constituents at Togapeph Hotels, Ipaja stated that “for security to be adequately enhanced people must be ready to co-operate. It is the responsibility of you and me to take charge when it comes to the issue of security.”
The event was attended by All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftains in the community, traditional rulers, youth, as well as other residents of Alimosho Constituency I.
In his response in respect of government’s provision of more schools in Alimosho, the lawmaker stated that “I want to implore you the traditional rulers, if you provide land, I will facilitate the provision of schools.”
While addressing newsmen shortly after the event, Yusuff, who is the Chairman House Committee on Public Accounts (Local) said, “The meeting is significant because government will be providing what people actually want rather than what government thinks.”
He added, “It was a quite successful outing; you’ve seen it yourself and listen to demands of the people. That is why I commend the leadership of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa for his foresight.
“The significance of what we have done today is that the people’s inputs will have impact. Tax payers will see improvement on roads and infrastructure and even excellent relationship will manifest.”
