Newly recruited officers and men of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Bauchi State Command have been urged to uphold discipline and be professional in discharging their duties.
The call was made by the Controller of Corrections, Bauchi State Command, Suleiman T. Suleiman, at the passing out parade of the new recruits organised to mark the end of their four weeks induction course held at the State Headquarters Office, Federal Secretariat Complex, Bauchi.
Controller Suleiman Suleiman commended the new recruits for their resilience and commitment to work and urged them to put into use the knowledge acquired during the induction training.
