The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has deployed 2,000 of its personnel to Rivers State for the March 19 re-run elections.

The Commandant General of the Corps, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, who gave approval for the deployment, said one Assistant Commandant General (ACG) and four Commandants were also deployed for the exercise.

The corps’ spokesman, Emmanuel Okeh, said in a statement yesterday that the CG had directed the Assistant Commandant General in charge of Zone E, Owerri, Alhaji Abdullahi Lapai, to relocate to Port-Harcourt to oversee the operations in the re-run election.

Okeh added that in his directive to the personnel, CG Muhammadu noted that the corps had a significant role to play before, during and after the elections.

”I trust that the strong presence of the NSCDC personnel with other security operatives in the Rivers State re-run election will bring about a hitch-free election, as all focus will be on the election”, he said.
