Do You Still Have Faith in FG Recruitment Exercises? Civil Defence in Mass Recruitment Plans

nscdc-logo1-300x225For those who still have faith in Federal Government recruitment exercises, there is good news in the air as the Federal Government has indicated the desire to expand the services of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) through massive recruitment of young Nigerians into the agency.

This was made known by the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro, who gave the indication in Abuja at a ministerial retreat for top officials of corps drawn from various state commands. The minister said, going by the excellent performance of the corps and the increasing demand for their services across all sectors of the economy, he would discuss with appropriate authority, including President Goodluck Jonathan, for a waiver to recruit more hands.

Moro equally tasked the NSCDC and agencies under the ministry to be more proactive in addressing the current internal security challenges instead of the unsatisfactory reactive posture common among security agencies. He said Nigerians were disenchanted with after-the-act response to security matters, adding that NSCDC must work hard at preventing crime if it hoped to sustain contributions it made last year in the overall effort to stem the wave of oil theft, kidnapping, insurgency and terrorist attack in 2013.

The minister equally assured the Corps of support and cooperation of his ministry for better training this year to ensure improved capacity in view of the increasing role which the agency was called to play in the nation’s internal security setup. He commended officers and men of the NSCDC, pointing out that the corps had continued to distinguish itself in all areas of its mandate, even as he charged them to do more in maintaining discipline, decorum and respect for extant regulations.

His words: “You have been doing well and we commend you; but you must maintain absolute discipline in line with extant rules. Some of you have gone public because of perceived injustice in promotion and posting when you have approved channels to address the perceived injustice. This is irresponsible and an act of insubordination… Let me warn NSCDC and paramilitary agencies under the ministry that this attitude must stop.”
