NSCDC urges cooperation of stakeholders to enhance security


Abuja –  Abdullahi Gana, the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), on Tuesday called for cooperation of all stakeholders for an enhanced secured environment.

Gana made the call at the opening ceremony of a Security Management Training workshop for directors and senior managers of private security firms at the NSCDC Academy, Sauka, Abuja.

The training/workshop which is the third edition has as its theme: “Managing and Best Practice for a World Class Private Security Business: Exploring the Prospects and Challenges’’.

The NSCDC boss said that the workshop was timely as it was coming at a time when the country was faced with some security challenges.

He noted that the choice of the theme was quite apt as it was borne out of the corps’ desire for an enhanced security, targeted toward attainment of the much- desired peace and development of the economy.

“The challenges we are currently faced with require the cooperation of all stakeholders to enhance a well secured environment, unsafe for criminals and people with criminal tendencies.

“Our collaboration with the Institute of Security in Nigeria in this regard is borne out of our desire to always align with stakeholders who share the same vision with us.

“One of our goals is to impart additional knowledge and skill to operators in the industry that could act as a vehicle to take us to our collective destination,’’ he said.

He stressed that the main focus of the workshop was to repackage, re-engineer, refocus and strengthen the private guards industry toward ensuring professionalism and effective contribution to national security.

“Training and manpower development was an essential ingredient toward enhancing maximum performance, capacity building and high productivity in any human endeavour.

“Hence the need for workshops of this nature to further enhance operational efficiency in the Private Guards Industry,’’ Gana said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the workshop which commenced on April 19 will end on April 22. (NAN)
