This year, The LifePointe Church chose to make law enforcement officers in Lagos State their Valentine in a campaign called #LoveTheForce.
On February 14, church members delivered lunch and distributed love hampers to officers in Lagos. Officers were also invited to a special Sunday service on February 19 where they were celebrated and prayed for.
The culmination of the #LoveTheForce campaign was the presentation of the Love Award to deserving law enforcement officers nominated online by the general public. Beneficiaries received a family education scholarship of N250,000 and a year’s family health insurance. The beneficiaries are:
- Josephine Ukeme, a traffic warden at Yaba. She is known as “Lagos’ Traffic Control Queen” and “The Angel of St. Agnes Traffic”.
- Georgetta Yehovenou, 59 years old. She joined the Nigerian Police Force in 1983 and has served for 34 years. The last of her 3 children is currently a student at University of Ibadan.
- Rahmon Adams, 64 years old. He has worked with LASTMA for 11 years. He previously worked with Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI).
We deeply appreciate everyone who supported the #LoveTheForce project and we pray that your labour of love will not be in vain.
