Editorial
Governor Biodun Oyebanji’s generous donation to the Ekiti State Police Command is a commendable effort to bolster security. However, it also raises questions about the sustainability and effectiveness of such initiatives.

While the equipment will undoubtedly aid the police in their duties, how well will these resources be maintained? Furthermore, will this donation lead to a measurable decrease in crime rates in the state?

The Governor’s promise of further support for other security agencies is encouraging. Yet, ensuring these resources are allocated efficiently and transparently is crucial.
