The Mavin hitmaker, Korede Bello, was revealed by the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, as the first ever youth ambassador for the Nigerian Police Force in a ceremony in Abuja.
Represented by Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Danazumi Doma, 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.’’
In his acceptance speech, Bello promised to work with the police to ensure that youths do not engage in crimes.
