“Using this approach will provide the foundation for me to inject fresh ideas into the system and bring dynamism to problem solving.
“The first thing to do is to Research into what things that need to be in place; take Action; then Communicate to people on my course of actions.
“Finally, I will get evaluation from the feedback I get from people which will enable me to access and cross-check policies and decisions in other to forge ahead,” he said.
Adejobi said that he had been Ogun State PPRO for eight years, therefore was familiar with the responsibilities that came with the job.
He said that he would work with the Divisional Police Officers (DPO) to gather news on occurences, strategise and promptly decimate information to the public on matters as they arise.
“I can relate with the press and I know what they want for instance; if the details of an important event is missed, a follow up story can be done to make it relevant again,” he said.
The officer promised to work cordially with the Lagos State Commissioner of Police (CP) Hakeem Odumosu in disseminating information that would nip crime in the bud.
