The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Edo command, has advised its recruits to be humble in order to learn on the job.

Mr Samuel Dan, the state commandant of the corps, gave the advice on Thursday in Benin at the passing out parade of the 2019/2022 batch of NSCDC recruits.

He also urged them to humble themselves in order to qualify for future arms training.

Disclosing that 151 recruits were passing out after the training which began in April, he noted that an increase in its staff members strength was a key factor to boosting the security architecture of the state.

He said that the command was poised to stamp out crime, terrorism and vandalism from the state.

He further said that the recruitment and training of those passing out were in line with the vision of the Commandant General of the corps, Dr Ahmed Audi.

This according to the commandant was to strategically restructure, accentuate and reposition the corps to better tackle evolving security challenges.

“Ahmed Audi upon assumption of duty fought to remove the bottlenecks that hampered this recruitment since 2019. Today it is a dream come true.”

The commandant said that the recruits were tutored on both proactive and reactive security tactics of identifying threats, vulnerabilities spots as well as mitigating measures against crimes and emergencies.

“I wish to, therefore, thank our sister security agencies in Edo for their support and cooperation. Their work and synergy is legendary.

In his remarks, Mr Shuayb Jibril, Assistant Commandant General (ACG), Zone G, urged the recruits to avail themselves of the corps’ Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), Condition of Service as well as the Code of Conduct.

Jubril, represented by Mr Fasusi Ajuwale, said that this was imperative as any act of disloyalty to the system, disobedience and insubodination would be decisively dealt with and defaulters shown the way out.

He noted that the corps was strictly guided by the SOP, condition of service as well as the code of conduct documents in its engagements and re-engagements of its personnel.

He also said that there were established channels of communication through which the recruits should be guided with regard to official matters, correspondence and expression of grievances.

He further urged them to make out time for their personal development which would go a long way in adding value to their service in NSCDC and the country in general.

“You need to make out time for your personal development which will go a long way in adding value to your service in NSCDC and the country in general,” he said.

In their good will message to the graduating recruits, heads of security agencies in the state noted that present security challenges in the country had brought about the need for measures to tackle the myriads of challenges.

Brig.-Gen. Sani Abdullahi, the 4 Brigade Commander, who spoke on behalf of the service chiefs advised them to continue with training on the job as they go into the field.

“With contemporary security challenges, no one security agency can do it all. This, therefore, calls for synergy.

“Existing synergy and cooperation among security agencies in the state are yielding results.

“So you are going to the field to be part of this team and also recognise the fact that there is no supremacy when it comes to service.

“We are all one and together,” Abdullahi said. (NAN)
