NSCDC CG gives marching orders on protection of national assets

NSCDC
The Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ahmed Abubakar Audi, has given a marching order to all Zonal Commanders and State Commandants to intensify patrols, monitoring and surveillance on Critical National Assets and Infrastructure (CNAI) across the country, including manholes in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Olusola Odumusu, Director of Public Relations, NSCDC NHQ, Abuja in a statement, said the CG gave the charge at the second edition of the CG’s quarterly conference in 2023, where he affirmed the critical nature of CNAI to national security and socio-economic development.

According to him, there is a need for the corps to strengthen security in all aspects of the country’s Critical National Assets and Infrastructure through proactive and pragmatic steps as the lead agency in this regard.

He told the state commandants to engage in discreet investigation and intelligence gathering to track down those who engage in acts capable of undermining the security and integrity of our collective patrimony

Audi reiterated that the corps has recorded tremendous success in curbing oil theft, vandalism, violent attacks, and economic sabotage through determination, commitment and doggedness of personnel who have defied all odds in the face of daunting challenges to justify the confidence reposed in the Corps.

He charged the heads of corps formations to give precedence to training and retraining on intelligence and surveillance, which is key to finding a lasting solution to the challenges of insecurity in the country.
