The California National Guard, U.S., has offered to train personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in peace, security and emergency response in line with international best practices.

The Adjutant General of the California National Guard, Maj.-Gen. David Baldwin, disclosed this when he paid a courtesy visit to the Commandant-General of the NSCDC, Abdullahi Muhammadu.

The corps spokesperson, Emmanuel Okeh, was quoted in a statement on Thursday in Abuja as saying that the training would be encompassing.

Okeh quoted Baldwin as ‎assuring the NSCDC of priority attention especially to the areas of Disaster Management, Peace and Conflict Resolution, Security, Aviation, Fire prevention, Medical, Training and re-training of officers.

He stressed that capacity building was a very critical area of manpower development and the technological enhancement of security agencies in combating insecurity in the society.

‎He also proposed that some officers of the Corps could be trained in the U.S in the afore-mentioned areas to become specialists in them.

The Commandant-General ‎briefed the visitor on the history and core mandate of the Corps.

He said th‎at the NSCDC officials needed more capacity building and training to tackle issues such as pipeline vandalism, illegal mining and protection of lives and property.

The California National Guard officials had earlier visited the Ministry of Interior and some services under the ministry to strengthen collaboration. (NAN)
