In a bid to ensure the protection of lives and property, MTN Foundation has donated 10 fully equipped security patrol vehicles to the Lagos State Security Trust Fund, LSTF.
Speaking at the presentation, the Chairman of MTN Foundation, Chief Julius Adelusi Adeluyi said the donation of the security equipment was an eloquent testimony of the commitment of the organization to partner with government.
Adeluyi applauded the state governor saying that Lagos had always been blessed with visionary leaders who work day and night to ensure that they get things done in the right way.
He said there was no doubt about the fact that the State always set the pace when it comes to driving the socio-economic development of Nigeria.
He said: “It is such a pleasure for me on behalf of the MTN Foundation to show my appreciation to Governor Ambode, a man who has risen to this position meritoriously and therefore gives no surprise to anyone.
“He is prepared for the job; he has been in the civil service for 27 years and he is very well prepared. He has gone to good schools around the world and I must say that the Governor is doing well and we know he will do better.
“We like to commend the Governor for efforts at driving the implementation of the Lagos State Development Agenda and there are many examples to illustrate this. For example, the Light Up Lagos Project which has been quite a success and the way you have made very good efforts to complete the various road projects outstanding and also created by you as well as the massive procurement of vehicles and equipment for the police and Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, to tackle security challenges.
“That is why we are here to indicate to you that MTN, through the MTN Foundation, is ready to partner with you to make Lagos a greater State and to support your efforts,” Adeluyi said.
Commenting, the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, thanked MTN Foundation for the massive investment in security and other Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes, and charged other corporate organizations to emulate such gesture.
