Police Barracks Gets Facelift, as Kwara Government Addresses Rising Insecurity

The Kwara State Government has commenced renovation of selected barracks and police stations in the state, Governor AbdulRahman said the move is meant to make the security agents more comfortable and boost their morale to continue to protect lives and properties.

The Governor said the step will complement his administration’s provision of vehicles and other gadgets to strengthen the security architecture, thereby supporting the efforts of the federal government to secure lives.

Speaking over the weekend when he visited the barracks of the mobile police in Ilorin, where the administration has almost completed the phase one of the renovation, AbdulRazaq said the next phase would include the renovation of Area ‘A’ police division and provision of other amenities for quarters inhabited by cops.

The Governor also appealed to monarchs to continue to work with the government on security and peaceful coexistence in their domains.

He said the administration is cooperating with Abuja to stem the farmers-herders’ crisis through various initiatives, including the National Livestock Transformation Programme, NLTP, which he hopes would help settle herders in one place.

AbdulRazaq said a major takeaway from the #EndSars crisis was a need to improve the living conditions of security agents.

“After the #Endsars protest I moved round many security formations and I saw a need for us to support the federal government to improve the living standards of the security agents. So it is not just about giving them vehicles (which we have been doing) but how to also upgrade their living conditions.”

The Governor commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his huge investments in human capital and infrastructural development, which he said were unmatched in the recent history of the country.

“The President has done absolutely well in all areas — infrastructure and human capital development. The only criticism many bring up is the security challenge.”
