THE Nigeria Police has clamoured for a more cordial relationship among security agencies to collectively wage war against various challenges bedeviling the country.
Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Mr Adebowale Williams made the call during a courtesy visit to the Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Mr Micheal Adaralewa, in Ibadan on Tuesday.
The Police Commissioner said harmonious relationships among sister agencies would go a long way to fill all the vacuums in the security sector, to achieve a safe and secured environment.
While appreciating the efforts of the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, the NSCDC Commandant, Mr Micheal Adaralewa said the visit would facilitate a more robust relationship between both agencies which would enable a conducive working environment.
Mr Adaralewa noted that NSCDC was ready to work with the police and other sister agencies to make society better.
“We need each other, we can’t work in isolation. There is no way we will not have misunderstanding once in a while, but the ability to resolve it and forge ahead should be paramount. Civil Defence is ready to always be part of you as a partner in progress”, he said
Meanwhile, NSCDC in Oyo State has decorated 138 newly promoted officers.
While decorating the promoted officers, NSCDC Commandant, Mr Micheal Adaralewa said the promotion was borne out of efforts of the corps to encourage hard work, promote the culture of merit and reward excellence.
“We should all know that promotion is from God and that you should see it as an opportunity to redouble your effort in security service delivery to our dear nation bearing in mind the present security challenges and the need to overcome it”
Mr Adaralewa, therefore, called on the officers who were yet to be promoted, not to relent in discharging their duty accordingly.
