The Management of Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) is worried by rumours peddled in some quarters that the Corps Top notch and management staff are emeshed in recruitment scam over slot sharing which has created ill feelings in their midst.
It is pertinent to note that at the moment the Corps does not have Deputy Commandants General. So who are the substantive DCGs that are having rift with the Commandant General?
The Commandant General, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, who is surprised at this negative development says no rift exits within the Corps. According to him, “We are all working together as one family, in the NSCDC irrespective of religion and tribe, we are one big happy family”.
Gana further stated that there is no recruitment or replacement going on in the Service talkless of rift between the Top echelon of the Agency. It is all figment of imagination.
However, it is true that the Corps needs more personnel in order to meet up with the present demand, especially in the execution of the constitutional mandate and to that effect, request for recruitment of more personnel come 2016, is in process .
However this request has been misconstrued by several persons and without waiting for it to come to fruition chose the path of slander. Wrong signal was sent all along making people to believe that recruitment or whatever they term replacement is going on in the organization.
Abdullahi is therefore, calling on all meaningful applicants nationwide to disregard the rumours of recruitment in order not to fall prey to the gimmick of employment scammers. The NSCDC have therefore, worked out modalities that the moment approval is fully granted, advertisement will be placed in the national dailies and in the electronic media to enable applicants know the criteria to be used. Therefore, every online application, text messages, facebook , twitter and any other social media platform used to cunningly extort innocent applicants should be totally disregarded.
He reiterated that, having made this information known to the populace in general , any unsuspecting applicant who falls prey having failed to heed this warning should not blame the NSCDC.
Meanwhile, the Commandant General has frowned at the incident reported in both the Guardian and Punch Newspapers of December 30th, 2015, on the purported release of a petroleum bunkerer in Ogba, Lagos , by the NSCDC Lagos State Command, and has therefore, directed the Lagos State Corps Commandant to thoroughly investigate the issue of the release of the said oil bunkerer and report back to him immediately.
