The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ogudu Police Station, Lagos, Superintendent Celestina Kalu, has been adopted as a Fellow and Honorary member of Women of Integrity, Strategy and Excellence International, a.k.a Be WISE, a non-profit organisation that educates and empowers women and girls globally.
Speaking when the members of the organisation paid her a visit in her office at Ogudu on Tuesday, the Convener and President, Mrs Chinyere Maduke-Onwo, a lawyer and strategist, said that Superintendent Kalu`s act of benevolence and exemplary conduct has made her, not only a pride of the Nigeria Police but also that of women all over the world.
News Express reports that Mrs Kalu shot into limelight on September 19, 2019, when she saved the life of an armed robbery victim, Friday Ajabor, by offsetting his bills and even donating her own blood to him.
According to the Convener, women in particular and Nigerians in general need to emulate the kind police woman in order to make the world a better place.
She said that Superintendent Kalu`s act of kindness has shown that it is wrong to paint everybody with one brush.
Speaking further, she said that it is in Bethlehem that people said that nothing good could come from that Jesus Christ, the savior of the world was born.
“Mrs Kalu’s act of benevolence has changed the narrative in the Nigeria Police. We can now see that there are Mother Teresas in the Police that everybody loves to condemn. So, she has become an ambassador of the Police and the women all over the world and our organization, Women of Integrity, Strategy and Excellence International, popularly known as BE WISE is proud to adopt her as a fellow and honorary member of our group because she has demonstrated a very high level of integrity and excellence in her endeavour. Our main objective is to educate and empower women and girls all over the world.”
Responding, Superintendent Kalu thanked the organisation for the honour done to her.
She said that her adoption as a fellow of the organisation would inspire her to do more for the world.
