NNPC donates 16 vehicles to LSSTF

No fewer than 16 security operation vehicles have been donated to the Lagos State Government to improve security in the state.

The vehicles were said to have been donated by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company to enhance policing and facilitate quick response to distress calls.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, while receiving the vehicles on behalf of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund on Wednesday at the State House, Marina, said the donation was a fulfillment of the promise SNEPCo made to the LSSTF during a dinner organised by the state government to seek support from the private sector.

“They are doing this because we as a government have shown consistent transparency in how we deal with them,” he added.

The governor assured the oil conglomerates that his administration would continue to see them as development partners in the project of Lagos.

The Managing Director of Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company Limited, Mr Bayo Ojulari, said his company would continue to work with the state to seek other areas of collaboration.
