AMAC marshal to synergise with DRTS, police, Civil Defence
The Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Marshal Guard has said it hopes to synergise with other paramilitary organisations in Abuja to stem social vices and make the area safe for residents.
The Marshal General of AMAC Marshal, Kassim Ishaku Chicha, who made this known at the passing out parade of 700 newly trained personnel, said the synergy would help in ensuring better reorganising, regulating and monitoring of commercial motorcycle operators in many communities.
“Out of our total commitment to serving our nation and community, we held a meeting with the Police Command, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and Vehicle Inspection Officers on a joint task force to apprehend parking and pedestrian bridge offenders to ease traffic congestion in the city centre,” he said.
He said the group had helped in checking the excesses of ‘Okada’ riders and stemmed within the area.
He said the newly recruited 700 personnel were trained on intelligence gathering, surveillance, monitoring and evaluation and were available for engagement by corporate and private organisations.
On his part, AMAC chairman, Abdullahi Adamu Candido, urged the marshals not to drag the name of the council in the mud but to carry out their duties with utmost diligence and respect for rule of law. cultism
