Minister of Interior, Dr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo has decorated three newly promoted Deputy Commandants General, DCGs, of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC.

At the decoration ceremony in Abuja, the minister urged them to be loyal, disciplined and initiate ideas for the protection of critical national assets and Infrastructure.

He also called on the new DCGs to serve as building bricks and foundations of the nation, stressing that the ministry cannot achieve any meaningful development without their support.

To whom much is given, much is expected. The Board is doing everything possible to ensure that the NSCDC does not remain the same”, the minister said.

We are doing everything to uplift the service by increasing the welfare. We believe in an encouraged and motivated workforce. NSCDC is not structured at Sauka but should be structured in your minds”.

Dr Olubumi Tunji-Ojo further assured that the dark days of stagnation suffered by personnel of the Corps are over stressing that it is the right of personnel to be promoted and not a privilege.

The Minister cautioned against disloyalty, insubordination and indiscipline in service warning that such acts would not be condoned again.

He urged the management of the Corps to focus on service delivery especially on its role in Internal security, stressing that Nigerians need security more than ever.

The minister also lauded President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the support given to the ministry.

Earlier in a remark, the Director Supervising office of the Permanent Secretary, Mr Peter Ogbodo, said NSCDC has a lot of duties to discharge towards internal security and called on the DCGs to strive harder in accomplishing the tasks ahead.

He appreciated the minister for his effective representation of the Ministry of Interior attributing the unprecedented feats attained especially in the history of promotion in the board to his initiative and hard work.

The three newly decorated Deputy Commandants General are Shem Obafaiye Sunday, Fasiu Adeyinka and Ibrahim Raji .
