With criminality and vandalism of critical assets and infrastructure rife in the FCT, the Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for the nation’s capital city, Olusola Odumosu and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun have built a synergy so as to steal a march on the perpetrators of the heinous crimes.
Command Public Relations Officer, Comfort Okomanyi, in a Statement informed that the commendable feat played out when Olusola paid a courtesy visit to the IGP at the Louis Edet House, Force Headquarters, Abuja, this Thursday.
According to the Statement, the visit was borne out of the undying resolve of the Commandant in maintaining harmonious working relationship with his counterparts in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to provide adequate security for residents of the Federal Capital Territorry (FCT) and its environs.
He acknowledged that although police officers and civil defenders have an existing relationship, it is important to strengthen such relationships across all cadres as this would foster a more secure territory.
He stated that the rate of criminality and vandalism of critical assets and infrastructure in the FCT was of major concern to him and the Corps at large, hence the need for a more robust synergy with the police and other security agencies to curb such criminalities.
The Commandant reiterated his determination and commitment to contribute his quota to the enhancement of security in the country having being recently deployed as the Commandant in charge of the NSCDC FCT Command after a meritorious service as the Director of Public Relations (DPR) for NSCDC at the Corps National Headquarters, Abuja.
Odumosu commended the IGP for providing quality and strategic leadership for the Nigeria Police Force through ingenious innovations and deliberate reforms aimed at repositioning the NPF for better service delivery within a very short period of his appointment.
He seized the opportunity of his visit to congratulate the IGP on his well deserved appointment having followed his impressive trajectory in public service over the years.
He prayed for more wisdom, knowledge, understanding and God’s protection for the IGP to successfully complete his tenure while also writing his name in gold as the best IGP the Force ever produced.
The Commandant thereafter presented a congratulatory card to the IGP and also assured him of the Commandant General (CG) of NSCDC, Ahmed Audi’s esteemed regards.
The IGP, Kayode Egbetokun, while welcoming the FCT Commandant, promised to always give support to the Corps where and when necessary.
He wished him a successful administration as the NSCDC FCT Commandant and also charged him to do his best in terms of performance to justify the confidence reposed in him by his boss, the Commandant General.
