The security agency set up over two decades ago by the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu led government to complement the efforts of the Lagos state police command in policing the state, has over the years witnessed increased deployment of operatives, thus, requiring periodical appraisals and suiting reinvention et al.

The current commander of the agency, CSP Saheed Olayinka Egbeyemi, at the assumption of office, immediately swung into action, placing high premium on personnel welfare, as has been his style at previous duty posts as divisional police officer (DPO), at four (4), different divisional headquarters and of late, as chairman, Lagos state task force on environment and special offences, where he, all left legacies and indelible marks of welfarism for uptimum service delivery.

True to type, at the inception of his stewardship of the RRS, in December of the year 2020, one of his first observations was the non availability of an official lobby for the agency’s standby operatives, which inevitably meant that, the operatives had to make do with hanging out and sheltering under available shades around the agency’s precinct.

The commander, immediately reached out to the appropriate government quarters with his suggestion for an official extension of the agency’s edifice to make provision for the observed gaps for enhanced operations; the approval was duly secured owing to the import of the proposal and the new office extension is already at a very advanced stage of completion now and will be ready for commissioning in no distant future.

The new office extension consists of a very spacious lobby for the standby men of the agency who hitherto had no place, the offices of the O/C Decoy and O/C Provost; it will also house the Archives, an operational office and toilet facility.

The commander of the agency, while, commending the Lagos state government for it continued support to the unit through the Lagos state security trusts fund (LSSTF), averred that, his philosophy has always been, unalloyed commitment on the job, laced with unwavering appetite for the welfare of operatives, because personnel welfare will naturally beget excellent delivery, he stressed.

CSP Saheed Olayinka Egbeyemi has further said that, the Lagos state government under the stewardship of his Excellency Mr. Babajide Olushola Sanwo-Olu and team, commits huge and unrivalled resources to the security of lives and property of Lagosians and the Rapid Response Squad ranks highest on the list of beneficiaries of the government’s support as regularly demonstrated in the supplies of a range of modern times security gadgets and operational vehicles.

At the completion of the new offices, added to the regular prompt receipt of operational allowances, we are sure to witness added impetus to the overall morale of personnel and expectedly elicit more commitment from them and by implication enhanced security for life and property in the state

Funds expended on political campaigns in Nigeria is now a critical component of Nigerian corruption…Otunba Opeyemi Agbaje,Chairman Afenifere Ogun state

In his words on INEC and Party Candidates Bank assets,he said “My first concern is what is INEC’s definition of “bank assets?” Is it just bank account balances or more than that? If its just bank account balances, I doubt what practical use such information will be to INEC.

Secondly, I wonder whether INEC has the legal authority to request candidates to declare their “bank assets”. Yes the agency is authorised to monitor campaign expenditure but does that ipso facto confer on them the power to request bank balances? I’m not so sure of that. Code of Conduct Bureau and perhaps EFCC or ICPC may have such authority but its not clear that INEC does.”

Responding to the commission’s move to establish a finance monitoring teams,Otunba Opeyemi Agbaje says, “It is desirable and proper for INEC to establish mechanisms to monitor campaign finance and expenditure. The funds expended on political campaigns in Nigeria have become unreasonably huge and is now a critical component of Nigerian corruption and political dysfunction. I support any lawful effort to constrain and control this issue within the ambit of the law.”

The Ogun State Afenifere chairman emphasized that The EFCC and Deposit Money Banks have the responsibility to report suspicious financial transactions and he support leveraging this mechanism to monitor campaign finances…

“The Constitution guarantees freedom of association to all Nigerians so I can understand as many parties as possible seeking INEC registration. As a practical matter of course I recognise the operational, logistics and political difficulties inherent in having too many political parties. Nevertheless I believe every legitimate and conscientious political tendency should have the right to express themselves through a political party.”Otunba Agbaje maintained.

“I am excited at the news that youths and students top new voters registrations. I urge all youths, students, professionals, workers and indeed all Nigerians who are yet to register to do so. We can aim to register 12 million additional voters before the General Elections and take new registrations to over 20million!!! I know that’s an ambitious target but we need ambitious objectives and goals if we must reform and transform Nigeria.The Youths deserves encouragement to take up challenges and prepare for the future.
