The Commandant -General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Alhaji Abdullahi Gana, has said that the Federal Government (FG) under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to the welfare of staff of the Corps.

A statement by the NSCDC’S Public Relation Officer, Mr Emmanuel Okeh, said Gana made the declaration during a meeting with the Zonal Commanders and State Commandants of the Corps in Abuja on Monday.

Gana said that the meeting was meant to review the operational strategies of the corps to actualise its mandate especially in the area of protection of critical infrastructure such as oil and gas pipelines installations.

According to him, the protection was also designed to curb oil bunkering and illegal refineries.

Gana said that the present administration had made adequate budgetary allocation for the corps to carry out its constitutional mandate effectively.

He charged the zonal commanders and state Commanders to ensure effective information dissemination to the grassroots on the policies of the corps in order to avoid rumour mongering.

``An informed mind is an enlightened mind, while an uninformed mind lives on speculations and rumors , therefore, for us to get it right, we must carry everybody along at all times ,'' he said.
