remark while expressing his gratitude for the artistic piece said, “I feel happy when people honour the members
of the Nigerian Police Force, it means they appreciate the entire Police Force
and what we do; and when people appreciate us, we feel loved and encouraged
even to do more. Our duty is to serve and protect.”

it, but then I got discouraged by my teacher when he told me being an artist
won’t amount to anything tangible in future”.

“So now it gives me joy when I see the wonders young people
like Alesh Akeem can do with art”.

 He added.
