This new development spurred the Board Member of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF), Dr. Ayo Ogunsan to send his hearty congratulations to the newly appointed and promoted senior officers. He also tasked them not to relent on their oars and to justify the confidence that has been reposed on them by the Executive President of Nigeria, Pres. Bola Ahmed Tinubu through the Police Service Commission and indeed all Nigerians who expects so much from them.
His words, ‘I want to congratulate the newly appointed and promoted senior officers of the Nigeria Police namely, DIG Dasuki Galadanci, AIG Tajudeen Abass, AIG Yetunde Longe, CP Lanre Ogunlowo, and CP Waheed Ayilara on their new ranks. Their promotion comes to me as a testament of dedication to duty, effective service, and commitment to policing ideals. I commend them and wish to inform them that they have to prove their mettle.’
‘Nigerians expect much. You have to deliver. I wish you God’s goodness, sound health, and wellbeing on your new role’, Ogunsan urged the promotees.
