Chairman, South West Governors’ Forum, Rotimi Akerodolu said, governors of the South West would ensure that they give what it takes for the security of lives and properties in the region.

Akeredolu gave the assurance in his remarks at the on-going South West Governors, the Inspector General of Police and other Stakeholders Summit on Community Policing taking place at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja.

The governor said it was time to face the truth which is community policing because of the peculiarity of every state, adding that this is what is done in advanced countries and that it was time to embrace it because of numerous security challenges which had overstretched the conventional police.

“This is something of great importance to all of us, something we cannot pretend about, we must be honest with ourselves, all of us agree that we are facing security challenges, the National Assembly, the President, nobody is happy with the way things are going, we must have a rethink about central police, there is too much on the IG’s table”, Aketedolu said
