Lagos Launches The First Safety Arena In Nigeria (Photos) by deomelllo: 9:38pm On Jan 09













Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday unveiled a world class safety arena to effectively tackle problem of emergency management in the state.

The Safety Arena housed all emergency government agencies and security agencies like Taskforce, LASEMA, Fire Services, among others.

Ambode, while speaking at the event said Lagos was currently grappling with the challenges of huge population like most mega city-states around the world.

According to the governor, one of the challenges was the ability to provide security as well as effective safety and emergency management, in order to prevent unnecessary loss of lives and property.

“In continuation of our commitment to ensure a safe and secure Lagos, we are today commissioning the first Safety Arena in Lagos State and the first of its kind in Nigeria. In this Safety Arena, we have brought all the Departments and Agencies responsible for safety and emergency management under one roof.

“This complex has the Fire Service Department; Environmental Health Department; Lagos State Ambulance Services (LASMBUS); State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit (SEHMU); Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA); Safety Commission; Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA); Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Corps; (LNSC); and the Nigerian Legion.


“By providing ‘The Safety Arena’, we are not only institutionalising inter-agency co-operation and collaboration but we are moving our emergency response mechanism to a new level with a more robust approach to emergency rescue through improved coordination and faster response time,” he said.


He explained that with the movement of the agencies into the Safety Arena, the state would experience better synergy among the agencies , saying this would be seen in a significant improvement in the response time to most safety and emergency issues in the state.


“Let me assure you that we are not only determined to institutionalize inter-agency collaboration but we are equally desirous of improving the inter-sectorial cooperation and synergy for Emergency Responders required for an effective Incident Management System,” he said.

The governor charged the management and staff of the ministry and the various agencies to continue working on the improvement, renewal and sustenance of the existing synergy amongst the various agencies and players saddled with the responsibility of managing safety and emergencies in the state.

“I must not fail to reiterate our commitment to create institutions that will serve our people satisfactorily always. Members of the public must not be treated inhumanly at any time your duties are being performed. We would not tolerate any professional misconduct or behaviour from our officers in this Arena,” he stated.

Though I'm still not a great fan of Ambde, I love this great idea. This is definitely one of his best ideas as a governor.



When it comes safety and security, there is nothing like coordination and synergy.

20 men like AA to pilot this country (without Tin.b's) influence and Nigeria could possibly be great again.

Fresh mind and fresh blood is the only way out for this country systematically raped by old farts.

This Amobode seems to be doing well silently just like Chime did in Enugu. My own governor is still busy receiving chieftaincy titles and exporting ugu.

Kudos Ambode.

Ambode is really keeping with the tradition of good governance entrenched by his predecessors. I am particularly impressed with what he has done with the LASEMA/LRU. Lagos is really progressing under his stewardship He should keep it up.

Lagos state is on it's own when compared with other states in Nigeria.

As I said in my other comments.

Lagos state development is as a result of tribes and ethnic groups working with each other by dropping tribalism, ethnicity.

No place in this world that developed without different races, tribes mixing up and working for progress.

Quote me anywhere.

Without Tinubu, the gains in Lagos would not have been coordinated. Lagos successes is as a result of each governors building on the achievements of their predecessors..
