SSS Charged On Security


The Chairman of the Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Information, Security and Strategy (SSS), Olusegun Olulade, has appealed to the State Security Service in the state to continue to sustain the cooperation that exists between it and the state government.

Olulade, who made the appeal when he led other members of the Committee to the SSS office in the state recently, also thanked the security agency for its efficiency in curbing crime in the state.

Welcoming the Committee, Director of SSS, Mr. Achu Olayi, said the cooperation was mutual.

He thanked the state government for introducing the Security Trust Fund which he described as second to none in the country, adding that the SSS had benefited immensely from the Fund.

Meanwhile the Committee has promised continued assistance to the state’s Records and Archives Bureau (LASRAB) in its efforts to continue to preserve the culture of the people of Lagos State through proper management of historical documents and artifacts.

Part of such assistance, according to the Committee, would come in increased budgetary allocation to the Bureau.

“Your achievements speak more about you, especially in the management of the resources in your care,” Olulade told the Director General, Mr. Bolaji Uthman.

He added: “LASRAB is the best place to be to know your history. Every secondary school in Lagos State should visit this place as the information the students get from here will help them in them in the future.”

Uthman had earlier taken the team round the facilities in the centre including a mini-museum.

The DG said further that the Bureau has established a policy discouraging agencies, ministries and departments from disposing off any record without the permission of LASRAB.

He appealed to the State House of Assembly to help appeal to the people of the state to give the Bureau copies of historical events in the state.
