Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has called on the Enugu command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCD) to improve its performance as the security situation in the country continues to deteriorate.

Mr Ugwuanyi made the call on Monday evening while receiving the new NSCDC commandant, Aloysius Obiorah, at the Government House.

The governor observed that the state was looking forward to a better service delivery by the NSCDC while calling on the commandant to galvanise his management team into action.

“Enugu state government and its people are ready for a robust partnership with the corps in ensuring it achieves its mandate in the state,” he said.

According to Mr Ugwuanyi, Enugu under his watch has been doing everything possible to ensure the security of lives and property. He urged the NSCDC to step up and meet the challenges of the time.

The governor informed the commandant that Enugu had more responsibilities to hand over to the corps but wanted to see more commitment from the security agency.

He demanded better intelligence gathering skills from security services to stem crime and violence in the state.

Mr Obiorah told the governor that he was deployed to the state with an instruction to deliver on the NSCDC’s mandate.

“The NSCDC, with your support and that of the good people of the state, is ready to meet the expectations of the people in terms of security of lives and property,” stated the commandant. “The corps is known for integrity in service delivery and nothing short of that will be given to the good people of the state.”

The commandant also appealed to the governor to assist the NSCDC in Enugu with logistics as the duty of policing, adding that the civil defence is ready to synergise with other security agencies to make life more meaningful and leave the state better secured and peaceful.
