The Niger Delta Peace and Environmental Justice (NDPEJ) has commended Dr Ahmed Audi, Commandant General (CG) of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence (NSCDC) over his dogged fight against oil theft and other criminal activities in the society.

The group gave the commendation in a statement issued by its Chairman and Secretary, Mr Omos Ovie and Salihu Adamson respectively and made available to journalists in Warri, Delta State.

They said that the NSCDC had destroyed over 350 illegal refineries in the Niger Delta region, apprehended rail track thieves and among others in line with its statutory mandates.

Recall that the NSCDC was established in 2003 to provide adequate security for the lives and properties of the citizenry and the National Critical Assets. 

The group said that the security outfit in collaboration with the Tantita Security Service Nigeria Limited (TSSNL)was yielding significant results in the nation’s economy.

They appreciated the NSCDC boss for his commitment to improving staff welfare and payments of the backlog of the promotion’s arrears.

The group also commended the Commandant General for Staff Insurance Scheme review which had provided succour to the next of kin of personnel who died in the course of duty.

They also acknowledge the transformational drive that the NSCDC boss had brought into the security outfit to make it an enviable organization in the country and urged him to sustain it.

The group said that CG Audi was determined to create a legacy that would stand the test of time in the history of the NSCDC through his numerous developmental programmes.

According to the group, “The trend in which the NSCDC has risen from obscurity to become one of the most enviable security outfits under Audi’s leadership is commendable.

“The progress and achievements of the Corps under Audi’s leadership have tremendously changed the narrative and made the organisation more attractive.

“The motivation of staff has also improved productivity in the organization.

“The overall assessment has shown that the NSCDC has grown to become an elite organization of international standard and should be allowed to continue under the present Audi-led administration,” they said.

The group highlighted some of the achievements of the NSCDC under the watch of the CG Audi to include the introduction of career progression courses for personnel of the NSCDC; an increase in the welfare packages of Corps’ personnel; and massive acquisition of arms for NSCDC operational use.

Maintaining effective collaborations with other Security Agencies; robust staff welfare and motivational packages for personnel of NSCDC through massive promotion, conversion and upgrading as well as provision of staff welfare buses.
