Minister of Interior, Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has reiterated federal government support to the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to deliver on its mandates.
According to a statement on Thursday by Afonja Fatai Ajibola, the spokesman of the Ministry of Interior, Tunji-Ojo gave the assurance on Wednesday while launching a camouflage uniform for the NSCDC, as an additional uniform for the security agency.
He said: “As a federal government, we are putting in all that we can to ensure that we provide and support our agencies with the right materials and of course the right knowledge needed for them to deliver, I know the NSCDC is not an exception”.
He stressed that the government would continue to support the corps, especially on the welfare and training of officers, expressing optimism that the dividend of government investment in the corps would enhance security in the country.
The minister said; “to whom much is given much is expected”, urging the NSCDC to give Nigeria the best security.
He said the new camouflage uniform would go a long way to give officers of NSCDC a sense of pride amongst their contemporaries within the security circle, adding that it would boost their morale and give them confidence.
Earlier in his presentation of the new camouflage uniform, Commandant General of NSCDC Abubakar Audi, told the Minister that operatives of the corps took part in all joint operations, both kinetic and non-kinetic, saying only NSCDC personnel do not have camouflage uniforms.
He assured that the new uniform would inspire confidence and boost officers’ morale while on operations, adding that the officers have been yearning for the camouflage to blend with their counterparts in other services.
