Praises were showered on CWAY Group, producers of hygienic water and beverage products; Torydoes Advertising Agency and Crimewatch Magazine as they donated over 50 modern traffic stands to the police in Lagos State.

For men and officials of the police, the traffic stands will shelter the law enforcers on traffic duties, play significant roles in alleviating traffic congestion and by extension contribute to improvement of the economy, hence the commendations.

Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Adegoke Fayoade, who took delivery of the traffic stands from the groups, expressed gratitude to them on behalf of Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun.

CP Fayoade praised CWAY Group for joining forces with the state police command as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility efforts.

He said, “It is difficult to measure the benefit of this donation, but it presents numerous opportunities.”

The police boss emphasized the significant loss in revenue, productivity and health issues, including stress, caused by traffic bottlenecks throughout the state.

Adegoke, who expressed gratitude to CWAY group and Torydoes Advertising Agency for choosing the state police command as a beneficiary of their CSR efforts in the area of road traffic management, said that the traffic stands would be strategically placed throughout the state to alleviate traffic congestion and improve the economy.

The CP stressed the importance of the partnership with Crimewatch magazine as a prominent news platform.

The Deputy Director of Marketing, CWAY Group, Mr Samuel Akinrimisi, stated that the traffic stands were reinforced to provide protection and resting platforms for the officers on duty.

Akinrimisi, which said that the group conceived the idea of partnership with the police due to the hazards faced by officers during their daily duties, praised the police for providing adequate security coverage for their structures and facilities.

The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Torydoes Advertising Company Limited, Mr David Akharume, said that his company’s involvement in the project was a means to enhance the security landscape of the country.
