Concerned Nation Builders Initiative(CNI), a nongovernmental organisation has partnered with Epe club to donate three traffic booths to security and traffic officers in Epe Division.
Mr Idris Tele-Olukoya, Founder of the NGO told the News Agency of Nigeria,(NAN) in Epe, on Tuesday.
He said that the donation of the cabins took place recently and recorded the attendance of government security agencies.
He mentioned some of the security agencies present as: Nigerian Police, Federsl Road Safety Corps(FRSC), Lagos Neighborhood Safety Corps(LNSC) and Lagos State Trsffic Managment Authority(LASTMA).
He said that the kind gesture was to ease the activities of traffic officers on the highway.
He added that the idea was also to provide shield for both traffic and security officers at their various duty posts at both rainy and dry season.
Tele-Olukoya said that the nongovernmental organisation, CNI and Epe club pledges to donate 10 cabins across Epe Division but the first batch was donated recently while other cabins would be distributed soonest.
He said that the organisation was not unaware of the challenges facing traffic and security officers at major strategic junctions, monitoring either human or vehicular movement under the cold or hot weather, without having a shield for slight protection.
He said this prompted the NGO and Epe club decision to provide the traffic officers the booths under which they can hide during rainfall or intense sun and still perform their duty effectively.
Tele-Olukoya said that the organisation would not fail to continue to contribute immensely towards the overall development of Epe Division.
He said theat the development was part of the organisation mission by ensuring human capacity building, promoting good governance and community development advocacy.
He urged the traffic officers to effectively utilised the cabins donated to them, as that would prompt the organisation to do more projects that would be designed to protect lives and properties of the citizenries.
Idris Tele-Olukoya felicitated with all Muslim Faithful in Epe division on this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration and admonished them to conduct themselves peacefully throughout the festivity.
He also advised the Muslims killing rams to dispose off the refuse properly and not block the drainage with any of the livestock waste.
Tele-Olukoya also called for collective efforts of all security experts in this season to ensure that Epe Division, Lagos State and Nigeris at large are well safe.
