She opined that the all-inclusive governance of the administration of Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode is concerned about the welfare of the citizenry regardless of creed or status stressing that her Ministry does not arrest innocent citizens from the streets.
Akinbile-Yussuf said, “We are concerned with youths that need rehabilitation whom we educate from primary school to the university as the case may warrant or we otherwise engage them in vocational studies based on their academic abilitities.”
While responding to a question on the Ministry’s modality for rescuing youths undergoing rehabilitation in different homes and centres under her care, she said, “parents, relatives or neighbours of such disturbed youth who notice their anti-social behaviours contact us in writing, we then deploy social workers to investigate. The social workers findings determine the action to be taken.”
