No fewer than 180 personnel of Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) Enugu State Command have been decorated with their new ranks in Enugu.
The recently promoted and decorated personnel included 89 officers and 91 rank and file serving within the Command.
Speaking after the decoration ceremony at the weekend, the Controller of Corrections in Enugu State, Mr. Godwin Onokohwomomo, said that promotion comes with added responsibility.
Onokohwomomo charged the newly decorated personnel to rededicate themselves to their duties as well as redouble their efforts to meet the mandate of the NCoS.
According to him, to whom much is given; much is expected and higher position means higher responsibility.
“I charge you to remain focused, show utmost loyalty and dedication to the NCoS and serve of our father land. I wish you well and hope that your output will be commensurate and even surpass the expectations of your new ranks,” he said.
The state NCoS boss also appreciated the Controller General of Corrections (CGC) of the nation and his deputies for approving the promotions and new ranks.
“We are grateful to the NCoS headquarters and our overall boss for this gesture, which I believe will act as morale booster for our personnel to give their best to the service,’’ he said.
Mr. Charles Nwaeze, who was decorated with the new rank of Deputy Controller of Corrections, pledged that the newly decorated personnel would be committed and outstanding in the discharge of their duties.
Nwaeze said: “There is no better way for us to appreciate our various bosses that found us worth of these promotions and decorations than for us to be loyal and result-oriented in our duties.
“We also appreciate God Almighty, our family members and colleagues who have given us daily support to get to this height.”
An officer promoted from Assistant Superintendent of Corrections 1 to Deputy Superintendent of Corrections, Mr. Monday Emeka, said that he was grateful to God and NCoS authorities for a privilege of another decoration.
Emeka, who is also the Public Relations Officer of the Command, said that he would continue to put in his best to project the hard earned and age long positive image of NCoS in the state.
