NSCDC Urged To Reflect Federal Character In Recruitment






The House of Representatives yesterday urged the commandant general of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Abdulahi Muhammad Gana to ensure that the forthcoming recruitment exercise into the service reflects the principle Federal Character.

The House also mandated its  committees on Interior, Federal Character and Legislative Compliance
to monitor compliance and report back to the House in four weeks for further legislative action.
The member representing Iseyin/Itesiwaji/Kajila/Iwajowa federal constituency of Oyo state, Hon. Olusupo Abiodun Adeola in a motion emphasised the Need to Adhere Strictly to the Principle of Federal Character in the Proposed Recruitment

Although, the. commandant general, while speaking at the 2017 budget defence session in February, disclosed that the Corps would commit about N2 billion to the recruitment of between 2,500 and 3,500 new personnel this year, the lawmaker suggest that NSCDC was planning to recruit 10, 000 officers and men.
