Lagos Gov Ambode Donates 120 5KVA Generating Sets To Power Police Formations

Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Monday handed over 120 new 5KVA generating sets to the Lagos State Police Command to power all police formations across the State, with a pledge of continuous support to security agencies to ensure optimal performance.

Speaking at Lagos House in Ikeja while handing over the generating sets to the police, the Governor reiterated the commitment of his administration to ensure the enforcement of rule of law and safety of lives and property in the State, just as he said that his vision was for the State to be among the safest places to live and work in Africa.

Governor Ambode, who was represented at the brief handing over ceremony by the Chairman of Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF), Mr Oye-Hassan Odukale, said the security of residents and investors remain one of the cardinal objectives of his administration, and that government would not relent in coming up with initiatives and programmes to guarantee safety of the people.

He said the generating sets were procured by the Fund to ensure that police formations in the State work optimally in their mandate of safeguarding lives and property.

According to him: “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,” he said.

The Governor also congratulated the new Commissioner of Police in the State, Mr Imohimi Edgal, and pledged to work with him to ensure the safety of the people.

He said aside the provision of the generating sets, the LSSTF had also been mandated to carry out the installations of the new equipment in all the Divisions and Area Commands in the State.

Besides, Governor Ambode urged police officers to take good care of the generating sets and use them for the purpose meant for the overall benefit and safety of the people.

Earlier, in his welcome address, Executive Secretary of LSSTF, Dr Abdulrazak Balogun said the generating sets would be distributed across the 107 Police Divisions and 13 Area Commands in the State.

He said the procurement of the generating sets was in furtherance of the Light Up Lagos Project of the present administration aimed at ensuring that every nook and cranny of the State are well lit.

He said: “The procurement is also in tandem with Governor Ambode’s vision of a secured and investment-friendly Lagos. Police formations are critical to securing lives and property in the State and it is very important that these stations function optimally. This is why the Lagos State Security Council recommended the provision of power generating sets for these stations and the State Security Trust Fund expeditiously approved the expenditure.”

Responding, the State’s Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr. Imohimi Edgal thanked Governor Ambode for the gesture, saying that the generating sets could not have come at a better time.

While assuring that the generating sets would be put to optimal use, Edgal said that the facility would go a long way to ensuring that the divisional and area commands are well lit up to enable them effectively enforce the laws of the land.

“You can imagine the confidence members of the public will have if divisional headquarters and area commands are lit with the confidence that their matters would be earnestly addressed.
“Power is very essential. Our communication gadgets, especially phones need to be charged. You cannot function anywhere, you can't take complains, you can't give directives to field officers when there is no power. These generating sets are very valuable to us,” the CP said.


  1. What a shame. They can not fix the power situation in this country.

    See spending monies on generators.

    Afterall the noise, give us 6 months we will fix power situation. Na 2 years to enter 3 years. shame on APC

    1. A big Shame on the governor to even bring to public. So we should forget about improved power supply or this is just avenue to steal again.

    2. My thought exactly. Not everything should be brought to the public. They might as well get gen set for phcn or whatever they call themselves these days

  2. There was a country...

  3. Shame of a nation
    These folks in power are not preparing to generate electricity at all
    They are patronizing their family members who import generators
    His son, nephew, niece, cousins, uncle are probably involved in these importations

  4. May thunder fire them all

  5. News!
    AAA PHEE CEE is not preparing to fix the power deficit in this country
    They are busy enriching their cronies who import generators.

  6. Na wa instead of working on NEPA..Na generators be achievement now..Na wa oh..

  7. Instead of bettering the power sector you're importing generators, I wonder who and who is preaching change. #welldoneApc

  8. Something very serious is wrong with our politicians and I blame it largely on our youths...we are being blinded and toss around by the wind of religion, ethnicity and party preference. I voted against PDP during the last election though I won't say I regretted doing so but this present government keep making mockery of our existence. And the fact that some people will still come here and praise them is something I do not understand. This is the major reason I support(ed) Biafra cause I'm tired of this shit. Gosh!!! Someone please hand me some ice!!!!


    1. You can see yourself? Supporting everything wrong and helping usher in bad luck. Kontinu!!

  9. Kai and they made it a news,what a SHAME

  10. Say whatttttttttt?
    There's actually no hope for a better power supply in the country. To think he is actually proud of his achievement about this is laughable..

  11. Utter stupidity! A generator is a backup means of power to be used maybe once a decade because of a natural disasters or so. How dare they used it as a primary means of power giving ppl lung problems because of all the nasty fumes. Not even solarizing which is a better longer solution, nasty generators.

  12. Declaring zero hope on PCHN.

  13. these generator sets wey dem go share amongst themselves..loool..
