Hailing the IGP Baba on the award, Board Member of the Lagos State Security Trust Fund, LSSTF, Dr. Ayo Ogunsan said: ‘This is a well-deserved honour for the IGP and the Nigeria Police at large. Despite the attempts at inflaming the society, the men and officers were able to keep their calm and followed due diligence and professionalism throughout the polls. The officers and men were excellent and professional.’
‘I will appreciate and say thank you IGP Usman Alkali Baba for leading the Police towards a successful outing at the elections. You have done credibly in this 2023 general elections which is a defining moment.’
