155 of the newly promoted officers in the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Ogun State received awards.
The officers in Abeokuta, the state capital, received awards from Idowu Ojelabi, the NSCDC Commandant in Ogun.
He said that several of the corps’ promoted officers had been stuck in their positions for years without moving up.
Ojelabi praised Ahmed Abubakar Audi, the commandant-general of the NSCDC, for promoting officers quickly, in particular for “promotion of officers that have been stagnant on certain ranks, nationwide.”
In Ogun State Command, for example, “we graciously have a total of 155 personnel that were elevated from one rank to another, including those who have been stagnant for a while.”
He claimed that by reviving the promotion procedure and holding reliable screening and examinations, the NSCDC leader tried his utmost to allay the long-standing anguish of stagnating officers.
He urged the senior officers in Ogun State command who had recently been promoted to return the favor by accepting the obligations of their new positions.
He urged them, saying, “You should make sure you work professionally to further cement the favorable perception the Corps already enjoys in the Gateway State.”
