The former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and current Executive Director, Maritime Labour and Carbotage Services, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei, has donated three operational vehicles to the Nigerian Police, Delta State Command, for the use of the Anti-Crime Units of Issele-Uku, Onicha-Olona and Asaba GRA Divisional Police Stations.
The patrol vehicles were presented yesterday, 16th September, 2020, at the Command’s headquarters in Asaba, on behalf of the former lawmaker by his former Chief of Staff, Mr Euphraim Osubor.
Ochei had acknowledged that no number of vehicles given to the police would be enough to combat crime in our society.
He said without mobility there was little or nothing the police could do to achieve result in crime combat, adding that in realisation of this deficiency, he had decided to make the donation as part of his token of support to the police in fighting crime.
The engineer cum lawyer, called on well meaning Nigerians, especially Deltans to also show commitment to police efforts in combating crime, insisting that the war against insecurity could not be left in the hands of government and security agencies alone.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Hafiz Inuwa has showered encomiums on Victor Ochei, describing him as a promise keeper.
He affirmed that the fulfillment of Ochei’s promise to provide the Issele-Uku, Onicha-Olona and Asaba GRA Divisions with patrol vehicles (Sienna cars) had shown how friendly he was to the Police Force.
He narrated how he was confronted with the challenge of kidnapping and other crimes on arrival as CP in Delta and how the encouraging promise of Ochei to assist became succour to him.
“Rt. Hon. Ochei was one of the few persons I shared my challenges with on arrival in Delta State Command. The issue of kidnapping especially on Issele-Uku, Onicha-Olona axis was a Herculean task. However, he assured of his assistance; and today, he has actualised that promise with these three patrol Sienna cars for Issele-Uku, Onicha-Olona and Asaba GRA Police Divisions.
“This uncommon gesture will afford us the opportunity to vigorously patrol these flashpoints and aid our effort at crime prevention and eradication, at least to the barest minimum.
“I want to also use this medium to call on other well-meaning Nigerians resident in Delta, to emulate Ochei’s gesture and assist the policing effort of the Nigerian Police Force. The Federal Government and Delta State Government are trying their best, but together with our little contributions, we can make Nigeria crime free.
“So, on behalf of the Inspector General of Police, I want to use this opportunity to appreciate Hon. Ochei for this wonderful gesture”, CP Hafiz Inuwa posited.
