The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has commenced preparation for its first ever promotion exams.

The exams will be for all senior staff between level 7 and 14 in Superintendent and Inspectorate cadres as well as level 15 and 16 respectively.

“Contrary to the allegation that appointment and promotion are done through the back door or meant for the highest bidder, the Corps wishes to state emphatically that, the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration, and Prison Service board, an umbrella body regulating Appointment, Promotion and Discipline in the agencies under the Federal Ministry of Interior, is in charge of the promotion examination, therefore, there is no mischief of what so ever,” an NSCDC statement issued on Monday said.

According to the statement issued in Abuja, “The Commandant General, Dr. Ade Abolurin, who is known for his drive towards staff welfare development has fought tooth and nail to ensure that he breaks the jinx in his own tenure as the leader of the organisation. He charged his staff to ensure they make the best use of this opportunity that will catapult them to the next level in their chosen career.

“He also charged the junior personnel who are awaiting their own promotional exams in not too distant time to remain resolute as modalities have being put in place for theirs to come up soon.

Abolurin stressed that, the exercise is in line with the public service requirement for upward mobility of personnel from one cadre to the other and all the rules governing the exercise as applicable to other services will be strictly adhered to, therefore personnel involved should take the exercise serious and observe all the lay down procedures by the board.

“He reiterated that the exam does not require payment of money of whatsoever; therefore, anyone found talking about money should be arrested.

“Also, personnel should be mindful in ensuring and maintaining credibility and integrity at all time as anything considered to be fake will not be entertained, tolerated and accepted. However, any center that anybody is suspected of foul play will be arrested and handed over for appropriate action.

“He advised everyone to be good ambassador by continually maintaining the organisation watchword of humility and integrity in all the procedures concerning the examination and most importantly to shun act of malpractices while at the same time wishing them successes in their exams.”
