NSCDC Not Recruiting Yet – Commandant General



The Management of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Thursday said it had not engaged in any form of recruitment in the service.

This was contained in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria, signed by Emmanuel Okeh, the corps’ Public Relations Officer in Abuja.

The statement said it was therefore worried by rumours that the corps’ top notch and management staff were enmeshed in recruitment scam over slot sharing, which had created ill feelings in their midst.

It said: “It is pertinent to note that at the moment the Corps does not have Deputy Commandants General (DCGs).

“So who are the substantive DCGs that are having rift with the Commandant General?”

The statement said the Commandant General, Abdullahi Gana, was surprised at this negative development, adding that no rift exits within the corps.
According to Gana: “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 was no recruitment or replacement going on in the Service.

The statement, however, said it was true that the Corps needed more personnel to meet up with the present demand, especially in the execution of the constitutional mandate.

It quoted Gana as saying: “To this 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 organisation.”

The CG, therefore, called on all meaningful applicants nationwide to disregard the rumours of recruitment and not to fall prey to the gimmick of employment scammers.
