A lot of people criticize politicians for their lack of impact in their communities, but Sen. Sharafadeen Alli (APC-Oyo South) has shown that being a politician goes beyond the title.
The senator, representing Oyo South Senatorial District, has partnered with the Nigeria Police to ensure welfare and effective policing.
Alli is the Chairman, Senate Committee on INEC and Vice-Chairman, Senate Committee on Customs and member of several other committees..
As part of his efforts to support the police force, the lawmaker donated a borehole to Mokola Divisional Police Station together with a generating set and a 3.5kva Inverter together with Solar panels and other accessories to Sango Divisional Police Station.
This gesture is not only a testament to his commitment to developing his community but also his appreciation for the role of the police in ensuring the safety and security of citizens.
The borehole is expected to provide a sustainable water source for the officers at the Mokola Police Station and it’s environs. It is no secret that many police stations in Nigeria are plagued by a lack of basic amenities, and clean water is not an exception.
The senator’s intervention will go a long way in improving the living conditions of the police officers and their families.
On the other hand, the three solar inverters donated to Sango Police Station will ensure an uninterrupted power supply.
Many police stations in Nigeria rely on generators, which are not only expensive to maintain but also tend to break down frequently. With the installation of the 3.5kva Inverter together with Solar panels, the station will be able to save costs and reduce its carbon footprint.
The senator’s gesture has been received with overwhelming admiration by the communities. Residents have praised his commitment to developing the community, and the police force has also commended him for his support.
It is not often that you see politicians partnering with the police force to ensure effective policing, Senator Alli’s intervention is indeed a step in the right direction.
Many have also called on other political leaders to emulate the senator’s gesture and support the police force.
The role of the police in ensuring the safety and security of citizens cannot be overemphasized, and it is only fair that they are provided with the necessary support to carry out their duties effectively.
Alli’s partnership with the Nigeria Police to ensure welfare and effective policing is not only commendable but also inspiring.
His intervention at the Mokola and Sango Divisional Police Stations has gone a long way in improving the working conditions of the officers, and his commitment to developing the community should be emulated by other political leaders.
