Group urges cordial relationship between civilians and armed forces
The Heroes and Helmets commemorative project, which was organised by Out of Nigeria (OON), an adventure and social good organisation, has been described as an ‘epic and uncomfortable challenge’ that moved Nigerians to work at improving the relationship between civilians and people in uniform.
Founder of Out of Nigeria, Mr. Toyin Adebola, said: “Heroes and Helmets was a fulfillment of my dream of a local motorcycle-inspired project that would resonate across the nation and the world with a soul stirring message and cause,” he said, adding, “The project, which recorded almost 4,000 selfies broke the ice with Nigerian service men and women and it has contributed to achieving our goal of creating better appreciation of members of the armed forces for their role in nation building.
Founder of Lost for A Reason USA, Ron Grace who participated in the circumnavigation adventure of Lagos State and was visiting Africa for the first time also commended the initiative, saying: “I am both proud and honoured to have been a part of the Heroes and Helmets project, which was a great way to raise awareness and help to nurture a better relationship between civilians and service people.”
