“Note also that, you are also expected to maintain a high level of discipline, professionalism and competence in the discharge of your duties. Your uniform and weapon must not be used to intimidate or harass any citizens”.

The FCT Commandant also explained that the Commandant General, Dr Ahmed Abubakar Audi spared no resources in ensuring that the graduands were properly trained stressing that to whom much is given, much is expected.

He said that the Command under his watch has the capacity, manpower and the professional know how to carry out the assignment as contained in the Acts establishing the Corps.

“As you receive your postings to different departments, Units, Area Commands or Divisions, ensure you put in your best towards fulfilling our mandate”.

“We must as a matter of urgency bring an end to acts of vandalism in the FCT by providing adequate security for all critical national assets and infrastructure within our jurisdiction”.
