There are indications that the Federal Government is set to recruit massively into the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in order to meet local and international security challenges facing the country.
This is even as the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro made public, plans to seek permission for additional hands into the Corps from the presidency. A move, which he said was geared towards deepening the operational services of the Corps, who have demonstrated absolute commitment and determination to bring to an end the insurgency that has bedeviled the country in recent times.
Comrade Moro who expressed satisfaction at the achievements of the NSCDC , at the just concluded Civil Defence Officers Summit in Sauka , Abuja, said the move, was a quick response to the recognition of the services of the Corps in averting security challenges in different parts of the country in 2012 .
The minister, who said that foreign bodies expected complete elimination of insecurity in the country, noted that internal security will be adequately handled by the Corps,
