The Deputy Commandant General of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Hillary Kelechi Madu, has finally been confirmed as the Acting Commandant General.
Madu has been acting since the former CG, Abdullahi Gana’s extended tenure expired. His predecessor acted appropriately by handing over to him as the most senior officer.
The spokesman, DCC Emmanuel Okeh, announced on Friday that Madu has been confirmed as the Acting CG.
In the statement, Okeh said Madu thanked the federal government and the Interior Minister, Rauf Aregbesola, for the opportunity to lead the corps.
He promised to continue in the execution of the agency’s mandate to justify the confidence reposed in him.
He assured of his determination “to rejig the system and personnel in order to ensure effective service delivery especially in Agro Rangers operations and the Protection of Critical and National Assets.”
