NSCDC wants pri­vate guards’ help in in­ter­nal se­cu­rity

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Joshua Odeyemi

The Com­man­dan­tGen­eral of the Nige­ria Se­cu­rity and Civil De­fence Corps (NSCDC), Ab­dul­lahi Muham­madu, has charged Pri­vate Guard Com­pa­nies (PGC) to help im­prove in­ter­nal se­cu­rity in the coun­try.

He gave the charge on Thurs­day in Abuja while is­su­ing li­cences to 10 PGCs.

While not­ing that the coun­try is faced with mul­ti­ple se­cu­rity chal­lenges, the NSCDC boss charged the new PGCs to con­trib­ute their quota to ef­forts to stem the tide of in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try through pro-ac­tive and pro­fes­sional con­duct.

“No coun­try any­where in the world has the re­sources to pro­vide hun­dred per cent se­cu­rity for its cit­i­zen.

“Hence the need for Pri­vate Guard Com­pa­nies to join the fight to en­sure that in­se­cu­rity is re­duced to its barest min­i­mum,” he said.

Muham­madu harped on the need for the PGCs to work closely with the Po­lice, NSCDC and other se­cu­rity agen­cies in gath­er­ing se­cu­rity in­for­ma­tion due to their grass­root na­ture.

“Your nu­mer­i­cal strength and spread is of tremen­dous ad­van­tage to this re­newed fight against in­se­cu­rity in Nige­ria,” he added.
