The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, FCT Commandant, Olusola Odumosu, has charged officers and men of the command to work assiduously in ensuring the protection of all critical infrastructure in the territory.
The new Head of the Command gave the charge while addressing personnel, including Area Commanders and Divisional Officers (DOs) across the Area councils in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Mr Odumosu said that his tenure under the NSCDC Commandant-General (CG), Dr Abubakar Ahmed Audi would be dedicated to ensuring results while actively carrying out the mandate of the Corps.
He said that the FCT Minister, Mr Nyesom Wike, had tasked the Corps alongside sister agencies in the territory to provide proper security and cleanse the city of crimes.
The FCT NSCDC Commandant frowned at the high rate of vandalism of street lights, theft of manhole covers, railings, railway sleepers amongst others in the FCT.
“It is high time we work together to put an end to these nefarious acts because these criminals are beginning to feel too comfortable in sabotaging the assets of the country,” he said.
He further said that the Minister had charged the Corps to treat those involved in vandalizing manholes as “Armed robbers”.
Mr Odumosu enjoined officers and men of the Corps to work tirelessly in ensuring that citizens and all critical infrastructure of the FCT were free of vandalism and other nefarious activities.
According to Odumosu, the newly inaugurated FCT Minister who is renowned for hardwork, has said he is on a mission to revamp all infrastructural amenities in the FCT, hence, the need for the Corps to live up to expectations in ensuring adequate protection of these assets.
He urged officers on the need for civility, professionalism, discipline, hard work, dedication and commitment while discharging their duties.
