He noted that, NSCDC will not interfere in a matter that doesn’t concern it. “If any child abuse case is brought to us, we’re going to refer the case to the necessary security agency, as all the security agencies are working hand in hand for the safety of all and sundry in the country”.

Delivering his welcome address, the Assistant corps commandant, Dapo Osanyingbe, described the directions of the corps in two ways. “The first, is progressive route of brilliant achievement of the core mandates of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps.”

ACC Osanyingbe likened the second direction as a standing legacy to the civil populace and the nation as a whole to ensure adequate security in their various localities.

“Today, without mincing words, we are here for another milestone in the history of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Inauguration of Civil Defence Public relations committee, (CDPRC). This is a committee which is going to be saddled with the responsibilities of giving accurate and timely information (relating to our mandates) to the nearest NSCDC offices and helping the Corps to fetch the erring ones within a particular community. It will also serve as an interface between members of the public and the NSCDC.

With the present situation in the country, it is good we dwell more on timely information, even from members of our immediate communities. Apart from being the link between NSCDC and the masses, this committee (CDPRC) will also help in sensitizing people around them on the need to inform NSCDC offices of any strange faces or happenings. The committee members should also be aware that their collaborative efforts are required to deter citizens who are culpable of posing security threats to our communities.

The program was attended by Royal Fathers, major stakeholders, dignitaries, chiefs, NSCDC officers and other guests.

Others are representatives of Road Safety Corps, Nigeria correctional service, Nigeria Immigration service, Nigeria Police Force and Fire safety service among others.
