The Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Dr. Ahmed Audi has indicated his readiness to rejig, rejuvenate and reposition the Corps.
Audi said in this plan, officers and men of the Corps would be given timely promotion and credible deployment.
The Commandant General gave the promise while addressing the personnel of the Corps during his review of the first Muster Parade at the National Headquarters of the NSCDC in Abuja
He frowned at the irregularities around promotion and posting of officers and men of the Corps before his assumption of office and directed that nominal roll of personnel who have been stagnated for five years and beyond be compiled with a view to correcting the abnormalities and ensuring fairness and equity for all deserving personnel.
Audi who told the personnel of his policy direction, expressed his determination to re-ignite the passion for the job by rewarding hard work and diligence through promotion and other forms of motivation and vowed to deal decisively with anyone found exploiting officers and men for promotions and postings.
He said: “I am aware of the backlog of unpaid promotion arrears and would stop at nothing to ensure payment in due course.”
He informed the personnel that effort is in progress to represent the matter to relevant authorities for consideration, reiterating that henceforth, promotion of personnel will attract corresponding salary increment in his time and not the other way round.
He said his assumption of office was not to lead a section of the Corps but to run an all-inclusive administration.
He however charged officers and men to see themselves as members of one family and shun all forms of religious bigotry and ethnic jingoism.
He assured of his commitment to developing structures and training strategies that would contribute to National Security by deploying modern technology to combat criminality and all forms of insecurity in the country.
He charged personnel to ensure work efficiency, humility and integrity in service delivery with fresh zeal to implement the operational concept of the Corps.
The NSCDC top brass used the occasion to congratulate women across the globe on the occasion of the International Women’s Day. He said throughout history, the central role of women in the society has ensured the stability, progress and long-term development of nations.
He commended the selfless commitment, untiring efforts and inestimable contributions of female officers of the Corps to the attainment of the mandates of NSCDC. He said this explained why his administration would invest heavily in capacity building of female personnel with a view to creating a formidable female Corps that can compete favourably with their counterparts all over the World.
He emphasized that the Corps will translate its comparative advantage as a grassroots security organisation to ensure that the war against insecurity is won.
He assured the Federal Government of his plans to harness the potentials of the Corps, which has a distinctive advantage over and above other services having enjoyed rigorous training and capacity building programmes organized by other agencies such as Army, Police, Correctional Service, Department of State Security (DSS), National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), among others.
