Kwara gives new operational vehicles to security agencies

Date: 2020-02-22

Kwara State government has handed new Toyota Hilux vans to security agencies in the state as part of its approach to further secure the lives and property of the people.

This comes barely two weeks after Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq called a security dialogue that drew participants from various sectors and interest groups across Kwara State.

The government said the vehicles were meant to re-energise the Operation Harmony, a state-driven initiative comprising the security agencies in Kwara State.

Speaking when handing over the vehicles to security chiefs in Ilorin on Friday, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, represented by the secretary to the state government, Professor Mamman Jubril Saba, said that, "when his government came on board, Operation Harmony was in a shocking condition, but I am thrilled by the zeal of His Excellency the Governor to bring the outfit back to live. It all started with the regular payment of subvention and provision of logistics to the outfit since the inception of this administration.

"We are however hopeful that the distribution of these vehicles will enhance the effective and efficient discharge of your duties. I urge you to pop and make good use of them in order to serve the desired purpose."

Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, said the gesture underpins the Governor's efforts to checkmate crime and strengthen security in the state.

"I say a big thank you to His Excellency. I want to use this opportunity to assure the Governor and the government of Kwara State that these operational vehicles that we are receiving today will be put into optimal use to combat crimes in the state," he said.

Egbetokun spoke on behalf of other security chiefs who attended the brief event in Government House in Ilorin, the state capital.
