The Commandant-General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Alhaji Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has reiterated the commitment of the corps to providing adequate security in protecting states, national assets and critical infrastructure in the country.
He said this on Monday, while playing host to the Niger State governor, Alhaji Sani Bello, who paid him a visit in his office, in Abuja.
He also said that plan is ongoing by the corps to organise ‘’Peace clinic’’ in training of the corps personnel on peace advocacy and initiative so as to enable the personnel serve as peace agents in states, by preaching peace in communities.
Gana, however, solicited the support of state governors for the capacity building project.
Earlier in his remarks, Governor Bello, had called for the deployment of more civil defence corps personnel in Niger State in view of the land mass of the state, so as to help sustain peace at the grassroots.
The governor said that the state, being the largest in terms of land mass in the country, required more security personnel in some local government areas.
He, therefore, assured the commandant-general that the welfare of personnel posted to the state is paramount to him, adding he will ensure that the corps is relocated to a more befitting office soon.
Governor Bello commended the efforts of the commandant-general in repositioning the corps.
