He noted that the incessant incidence of police brutality is worrisome and has dented the image of the force and the country. Whilst noting that the recorded case of police harassment and brutality of innocent youths is rampant in the Southern part of the country, especially Lagos, calls for restraint on the part of the police in the process of discharging their constitutional duties. He also appealed to Nigerians especially the youths to be law-abiding, maintaining peace and order, no matter the provocation.

Segun Mcmedal commended President Mohammed Buhari for moving swiftly to dissolve the controversial Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in compliance with the yearnings and agitation of Nigerians, home and abroad, and the Governor of Lagos, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu for demonstrating tact and wisdom in addressing the end SARS agitators in the State.

He, however, called on government at all levels, not to stop at dissolving SARS, but to take further steps in restructuring the entire system, reorient and retrain its personnel to restore people’s confidence in the Nigeria Police Force.

According to him, “The restructuring we are advocating is not superficial, but one that goes deeper into changing the negative perception of the Nigerian Police Force. We also call for an upward review of their salaries and welfare packages including increased funding of the Force. This should be treated as a matter of national emergency. We seize this opportunity to call on well-meaning Nigerians including corporate organisations to throw their weights behind this call.”

He also calls for the boosting of the Police Public Relations units with qualified professionals to counsel the system leadership and project the image of the Force and manage its communication during a crisis.

Jack, Jaden, Gabriel, and Martin are year-12 students at an international school in Hong Kong. The hike they will complete is not only daunting in length, but also challenging due to the elevation of 5,053 metres. The students chose the CDC as the sole beneficiary as Jack's younger sister previously attended an early intervention programme there. "This organisation (the CDC) is very close to Jack's heart, as he has a younger sister with Down's Syndrome, and understands the difficulties that families face when raising and educating special needs children to reach their full potential, which is something that every child deserves.

"Money donated to the CDC will go towards programme and service expenses, allowing them to aid even more families, and provide even better care with their top notch teaching specialists and therapists. Furthermore, it is no doubt that under the current COVID-19 pandemic, non-profit organisations like this will be impacted the most, so any money donated will be especially helpful now more than ever. We would really appreciate your support on our journey and cause!"

Dr. Yvonne Becher, the Chief Executive of the CDC, expressed her gratitude to the students for organising this meaningful event, "we are grateful for Jack's and his team's initiative, and are glad that the CDC's work is being recognised and has created such positive value to families throughout the years. Hope everyone can also feel the love and faith that Jack has for his sister, and spread the positive energy to many other children with additional needs in our society."

Based on each child's needs, the CDC's multidisciplinary team offers services such as assessments, early intervention programmes, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and targeted support programmes addressing social skills, sensory processing, attention, behaviour, early literacy and numeracy, and more. The CDC is also committed to supporting parents and professionals through counselling services, outreach screening, and child development training.
