Nigeria’s Acting Civil Defence Boss, Hillary Kelechi Madu, has pledged to continue to steer the ship of the Corps, while appreciating the Federal Government and the Honourable Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for the opportunity given to him to serve the Corps in acting capacity and promised to continue in the execution of the Corps mandate to justify the confidence reposed in him.
A statement by the Corps Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Oke, and made available to journalists on Friday, 22 January 2021, in Abuja, disclosed that the Acting Commandant General assured the Honourable Minister 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.
It would be recalled that the Honourable Minister of Interior recently charged the Acting Commandant General to sharpen the way the Corps perform its duties and play its role well in a way that will enhance internal security in the country.
The statement further noted that, the Minister also advised the Acting CG to identify areas of quick intervention while at the helm of the affairs of the service, urging him to take action that will boost the morale of the officers and men of the Corps while at the same time counting on his support to reshape the organisation for robust service delivery.
The statement also pointed out that the Minister echoed this during the official presentation of the Acting Commandant General, DCG Hillary Kelechi Madu, to him at the Interior Ministry by the Commissioner in charge of appointment and promotion at the Civil Defence, Correction, Fire and Immigration Board (CDCFIB).
