NSCDC reads riot act to 585 newly promoted officers in Oyo
The Oyo State Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Iskilu Akinsanya, on Friday urged 585 newly promoted officers to redouble their efforts in protecting lives and property.
Akinsanya spoke on Friday while decorating the newly promoted officers on Friday in Ibadan.
NAN reported that ranking of the newly promoted officers ranged from Assistant Commandant of Corps (ACC), Deputy Commandant of Corps (DCC), Chief Superintendent of Corps (CSC), among others.
Akinsanya urged the officers to contribute their quotas toward the success of the corps and for peace and security of the state and Nigeria in general.
"You may not be an indigene of Oyo State, but Oyo State belongs to you and I, because this is where you work, your assessment and promotion is based on where you are work.
"Promotion comes, not only by examination, but by other criteria, in terms of discipline, hard work and dedication at your place of work.
"The NSCDC Commandant General, Ahmed Audi, has promised that everyone will surely get what is due to him or her, and this promotion has demonstrated that," he said.
Akinsanya urged the officers to be more committed, dedicated and hardworking in order to keep the flag of NSCDC flying and ensure that mandate of the corps was achieved.
He also urged the officers to see themselves as part of the management and shun coming late to the office or leaving office early.
Oke, speaking on behalf of the newly promoted officers, said that being promoted was not a call for comfort, but for more responsibilities and challenge to do more.
He pledged the commitment of the officers toward achieving the mandate of the corps, especially in tackling the current security challenges in the country.
