The Commandant General of NSCDC thanked Governor for his support. He also promised to invest in training, retraining and assigning security tasks to personnel. El-rufai was also praised for his kindness in remembering the families of the deceased. He promised that the Corps would do all it can to protect the state’s infrastructure and lives.
