Ageless Dr. Christopher Kolade Dazzles At Security Summit!

From all indications, former Managing Director of Cadbury Nigeria, Dr Christopher remains the cynosure of all eyes and centre of attraction wherever he steps in. That was precisely what played out at a Safety Security Summit in Lagos during the week.

Organized by Pastor Niyi Adekunle’s Helpers House (church), the well-attended event which took place at the Bannex Hotel, Anthony Village, saw the octogenarian not only dazzling every participant with soothing words of life but proffered ideal solutions on how to tackle the monster called insecurity in the area nay, the entire nation.

He was invited at the august gathering which was in conjunction with the Anthony Village Police Command as a Guest Speaker and trust him there was no dull moment each time he picked the microphone.

The Divisional Police Officer, Superintendent of Police, Tokunbo Abanewonda, had in opening speech stated that they were always ready to serve the community and ensure that crime was exterminated from the area, with the co-operation of the residents.

According to her, ‘’don’t fail to confide in us whenever you hear or see any security threat around, we won’t hesitate to handle it and that is why our men are everywhere to execute it. Our telephone numbers are everywhere too for easier access.’’

And for Dr. Kolade, the solutions are simple. ‘’Morality comes in here. The way we conduct ourselves and the upbringing we give to our children matter a lot. The saying that the ‘’police is your friend’’ is not a Nigerian invention, it should have been ‘’police is supposed to be your friend’’ but must be properly applied,’’ he noted.

He added: ‘’Police are not the only ones that receive bribe in the society. But refuse to give and report any of them that demands same to the appropriate quarters. We must stop trying to be God because we cannot be God, this community must work with the authority in charge.’’

Other guests and community leaders at the occasion commended the efforts of the police for improved security services now available in Anthony Village and promised to co-operate with them to ensure that residents sleep with their two eyes closed henceforth.
