FCT NSCDC boss tasks officers on protection of critical infrastructure

The Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) FCT command, Olusola Odumosu, has charged officers and men of the command to work assiduously in ensuring the protection of all critical infrastructure in the territory.
Odumosu, who gave the charge while addressing heads of the command, area commanders and divisional officers (DOs) across the FCT area councils, said his tenure as the commandant is dedicated to ensuring results, while actively carrying out the mandates of the corps.
He frowned at the high rate of vandalism of street lights, theft of manhole covers, railings, railway sleepers amongst others, in the FCT, adding that the FCT Minister, Mr Nyesom Wike, had tasked the corps alongside other sister agencies to provide proper security and cleanse the city of crime.
The commandant tasked members of the corps to work together to put an end to these nefarious acts, adding that the criminals are beginning to feel too comfortable in sabotaging the asset of the country.
The NSCDC boss stated that the FCT Minister had charged the corps to treat those involved in vandalizing manholes as “Armed robbers”, even as he urged officers on the need for civility, professionalism, discipline, hard work, dedication and commitment while discharging their duties.
In a statement by the public relations officer of the command, Okomanyi Comfort, Odumosu enjoined officers and men of the corps to work tirelessly in ensuring that all critical infrastructure in the FCT are free of vandalism and other nefarious activities.
He further advised all personnel to renew their mindset, be motivated and maintain a positive attitude, adding that the issue of security will no longer be business as usual in the FCT as the current administration is dedicated to enforcing reforms.
According to him, “The minister has promised to provide us with the necessary tools to work and we must give him good results because as your Commandant, I wouldn’t tolerate any excuses for failure.
As a security organization in-charge of the protection of critical infrastructure, the expectations of the minister will be high and so we must not disappoint.
Strategies, structures and infrastructural development will be put in place and so we can’t sit-back and watch all efforts go down the drain.”
