NSCDC issues operational licenses to 41 private guard companies

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has issued operational licenses to 41 Private Guard Companies (PGCs).

NSCDC Commandant General (CG), Ahmed Audi, represented by DCG Operation, Dauda Mugadi, presented the licenses to the PGCs on Thursday in Abuja.

Audi said the private security industry was an integral part of Nigeria’s security architecture hence the need for them to be professional in carrying out their duties.

He charged them to place priority on crime prevention and protection of lives and properties in their areas of operation.

The CG warned that any compromise of national security will be dealt with decisively.

“Use your experience to promote public interest and socio-economic growth, which only thrives in a crime-free environment.

“As you join the league of players in this industry, you should not compromise standard as the provisions of the PGC Act and regulation must be strictly adhered to.

“National security must not be sacrificed on the altar of pursuit for business profit,” Audi said.

He also warned that companies who violate the codes of operation would be duly sanctioned.

The NSCDC boss urged the operators to constantly share intelligence information and ensure prompt submission of security reports to the Corps.

Audi advised them to track down and report suspicious activities in their areas of operation as they would be held accountable for any breach of security in their domain.

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Julius Abure has vowed to ensure the party takes over power in Nigeria and provide quality leadership.

He spoke while addressing journalists in Umuahia, Abia State, following a meeting with Governor Alex Otti and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of LP.

He said, “We will not rest until we are able to take over government and provide the people quality leadership that will work for the country.

“How do you reconcile a situation where we export crude oil only to import refined products at high costs. Nigeria’s problem is bad leadership, and once we get it right, every other thing will be fixed.

“Today, you can see that Nigeria is not moving as it should. A bag of rice sells for N120, 000 while minimum wage is N30,000. A tuber of yam that previously sold for N500 is now N1200.

“Life has become very difficult in Nigeria; security challenges are enormous; inflation is very high; unemployment is increasing, and people now find it increasingly difficult to feed. This is the reality in Nigeria today under APC Government.

“We will provide a leadership that will fight poverty and fight hunger; a leadership that will empathize with the people and liberate them.”
