Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Balarabe Alka­s­sim

As parts of ef­forts to sup­port the role of the Nige­rian Se­cu­rity and Civil De­fense Corps (NSCDC) in dis­as­ter man­age­ment, the Na­tional Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency (NEMA) has do­nated a mo­bile in­ten­sive care am­bu­lance to the corps for its op­er­a­tions in the Federal Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory.

A state­ment signed by the spokesper­son of the agency, Manzo Ezekiel, said NEMA’s Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral, Al­haji Muham­mad Sani Sidi, said the ges­ture was aimed at en­hanc­ing the ca­pac­ity of the NSCDC in the pro­vi­sion of emer­gency med­i­cal as­sis­tance dur­ing dis­as­ter.

The DG, who was rep­re­sented by the Di­rec­tor of Search and Res­cue, Air Com­modore Charles Otegbade, said: “NEMA is giv­ing this am­bu­lance to the NSCDC in ful­fill­ment of our ear­lier com­mit­ment to sup­port your re­sponses in the FCT.”

Re­ceiv­ing the am­bu­lance, the Com­man­dant-Gen­eral of the NSCDC, Dr Ade Abu­lorin, said the ges­ture has ev­i­denced the ex­em­plary lead­er­ship roles of NEMA in co­or­di­na­tion of dis­as­ter man­age­ment in the coun­try.

Dr Abu­lorin, who was rep­re­sented by the Deputy Com­man­dant Gen­eral Suleiman Bello, as­sured the use of the am­bu­lance for the de­sired pur­pose, adding that the NSCDC would con­tinue to cher­ish the ex­ist­ing work­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween the two or­ga­ni­za­tions.
