Contrary to media reports that there is infighting between top officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, over recruitment slots, the Commandant General, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu has dismissed such as rumour aimed at tarnishing the reputation of the corps and its officers.
Muhammadu stated emphatically that there was no ongoing recruitment in the agency talk less of sharing slots among top offers.
He also disclosed that at the moment, NSCDC does not have immediate subordinate to him and therefore wondered why there would be infighting.
In a statement released by the NSCDC spokesman, an assistant commandant, ACC Emmanuel Okeh, and a copy made available to Nigerian Pilot, the CG stated that the management of NSCDC was worried by rumours peddled in some quarters that the corps’ top notch and management staff were enmeshed in recruitment scam over slot sharing which had created ill feelings in their midst.
The statement said it was pertinent to note that at the moment the corps does not have Deputy Commandants General, wondering who the substantive DCGs that are having rift with the Commandant General could be.
The statement reads further: “The Commandant General, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, who is surprised at this negative development, says no rift exits within the corps. We are all working together as one family in the NSCDC irrespective of religion and tribe; we are one big happy family.”
The commandant General further stated that there was no recruitment or replacement going on in the service talk-less of rift between the top echelon of the agency.
“However, it is true that the corps needs more personnel in order to meet up with the present demand, especially in the execution of the constitutional mandate and to that effect, request for recruitment of more personnel come 2016 is in process.
He said this request had been misconstrued by several persons who without waiting for it to come to fruition chose the path of slander.
He said wrong signal was sent all along making people to believe that recruitment or whatever they term replacement was going on in the organisation.
“Abdullahi is therefore calling on all meaningful applicants nationwide to disregard the rumours of recruitment in order not to fall prey to the gimmick of employment scammers. The NSCDC has therefore worked out modalities that the moment approval is fully granted, advertisement will be placed in the national dailies and in the electronic media to enable applicants know the criteria to be used.
“Therefore, every online application, text messages, facebook, twitter and any other social media platform used to cunningly extort innocent applicants should be totally disregarded.”
