Authorities of the Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps Agency (So-Safe Corps) have vowed not to spare any effort in training its personnel and expose them to new trends on security matters, to adequately prepare them in combating security challenges.
The So-Safe Corps Commander, Soji Ganzallo, made this known at the closing ceremony of a training programme for over 1,000 men and officers of the corps, in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the State.
Ganzallo expressed optimism that the training would improve the intellects of officers on current security threats such as kidnapping, rape and herdsmen attacks, saying it afforded them an opportunity to tap from the vast knowledge of seasoned resource personnel drawn from the Nigeria Police and other security agents.
He pointed out that, with the support of the Prince Dapo Abiodun led administration, similar trainings had been held for officers in Ijebu, Egba, Ota and Yewa Zones, urging participants to maximise knowledge acquired for better and quality security service delivery to the nooks and crannies of the State.
In his submission, the State Commissioner of Police, Bashir Makama, said contrary to popular belief, security matters should not be left to the Law Enforcement Agencies alone, as it remained the responsibilities of all.
Represented by the Divisional Police Officer, Owode Egba, Akinfolahan Oluseye, Wakama implored residents not to relent in giving useful information to security agents, to ensure peace, comfort and security of the Nigerian nation at all times.
In his remark, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Kunle Osota, represented by the Director of Local Government Affairs, Mrs. Olusola Osasona, enjoined participants to remain dedicated to their jobs in reciprocation of government’s continued contributions and supports for security issues.
Speaking on behalf of the participants, Yusuf Samuel from Ado Odo/Ota and Blessing Uwandu, an intelligent Officer from Ipokia maintained that the training had exposed them to new ideas that would enhance their productivity.
