The Commandant General Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps(NSCDC), Ahmed Abubakar Audi has reiterated the Corps’ commitment to guard against all forms of harassment and violence at the workplace.

He stated this at a One-day sensitization programme held at the NSCDC National Headquarters, Sauka in Abuja.

The program was organized by the NSCDC in collaboration with the UN-women initiative, Germany and Norway.

The CG lamented the negative effects of workplace violence and harassment noting that incidences of workplace violence and harassment had cast a dark cloud over numerous industries organizations and endangering lives.

“To achieve zero tolerance, we must recognize that violence and harassment are not isolated incidents but rather systemic issues that demand a holistic approach”

The CG called on all personnel of NSCDC and the public to reflect on their role by creating a workplace that is conducive and mutually respectful.

In an address, National Head of Gender Unit, Kemi Ajet explained that the programme was not just to identify the problems associated with the workplace but to find long-lasting solution to any form of workplace violence and harassment.

“Our goal is to create a workplace that is safe, serene, peaceful and respectful for all personnel regardless of their identity or background”

There were goodwill messages from the UN-Women country representative, Ms Beatrice Eyong, the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement of the US Embassy, Shaun Gavin, the President International Academy for Gender and Peace, Professor Tyoor Terhemba amongst others.
