“All of us are aware that issues of security cannot be left in the hands of the police alone, but require the contribution of all stake holders. This is what informed my decision to assist in putting in place this Police Post for the benefit of Dorian Home and the Communities around it.

“Let me appeal to the good people in Omodara, Itaoolorun, Olajide, Store, and other communities around here to please, ensure adequate support for the officers who will be posted to the Dorian Home Police post to work, so that we can all make the operations of the police post officers effective and successful.
“I want to use this opportunity to specially appeal to officers and men of the police force in Nigeria not be discouraged by the challenges they confront, as some of us appreciate the enormity of the burden they bear.
“As proprietor of Dorian Home, I feel more confident about the security of lives of the children who live within the Dorian Home facility, knowing that the well trained men of the police force are nearer the facility than before.
“This is especially because, it is with our joint effort and the cooperation of other stakeholders that the task of giving the children at Dorian Home a good life can be made successful.”
