At the unveiling of Korede Bello as the first Nigerian Police Ambassador in December 2015, the former Inspector-General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase said that youths were critical to the fight against crime in the country.
Represented by Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Danazumi Doma, Director, Finance and Administration, Arase said:
“Korede Bello, you are the positive representation of Nigerian youths and on this occasion, the Nigeria Police celebrates you. We believe Korede Bello’s exemplary behaviour and tenacity of purpose, like that of the Nigeria Police, will be the needed influence to change the wrong or misconceived habits of some of our youths. It is, therefore, my firm conviction that in fighting crimes in our system, the youths are critical elements that must be incorporated. The process of bringing the youths into our fold as crime-fighting channels is very critical to the policing of this country.’’
Police spokesperson, ACP Olabsisi Kolawole said the opportunity would build awareness and foster development of the youths.
“I do hope that this new opportunity given the Nigerian youths will be judiciously utilised by preaching positive changes to their peers all over the country’’, he said.
In his acceptance speech, Korede Bello promised to work with the police to ensure that youths do not engage in crimes.
“I promise to do my best, we the youths of this country will not disappoint you’’, he said.
