Mr Hilary Madu Clinton, acting NSCDC CG
By Godiya Garba
The President Muhammadu Buhari Administration is committed to overhauling and remodelling the internal law enforcement agencies but from feelers, the Acting Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Mr Hilary Madu Clinton does not have the capacity and moral fibre to key into the President’s commitment to beef up Nigeria’s internal security.
This was contained in a press statement to Apex News Exclusive in Kaduna, by a pressure group, Arewa Security Advocacy Network (ASAN) and signed by the National Coordinator, Comrade Ahmed Dantijo and Comrade Bala Alhassan, Secretary.
The group lamented that a few days into his acting capacity tenure, Mr Madu has shown that he is inept and incapable of reforming the organization he met on ground.
According to the group, Mr Madu is on a vengeance mission and has started witchhunting some top management staff of the NSCDC by posting them out of Abuja. Emphasizing to everyone that cares to listen, that this is his time and he has been given the mandate to clean the augean stable and right the wrongs of previous administrations.
But on investigations, the Advocacy group said it found out he is desperately going after those he considers as threat and perceived enemies to his office and also those more capable them himself.
“We therefore pass a vote of no confidence on him just few weeks of his ascension due to the maladministration, victimization and top ethnic bigotry of top echelon of the agency.
“As he has gone on a revenge mission to seek personal scores instead of key into what he met on ground to build a formidable structure. We are also calling on the President to as a matter of urgency, call the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, to order for his vehement stance to bring ethnic bias in to the fray, ” the statement pointed out.
The advocacy stated that the first Commandment General of the NSCDC was from the Southwest and occupied the position for 12 years without challenges whatsoever from the government of the day, so why is this an issue now that it is our turn.
“As key stakeholders we are calling for a seasoned person to occupy the exalted office of the CG so as to reduce the criminalities and vandalization across the country on our pipelines and critical national assets including the reduction of herders and farmers clash across the country,” the statement stressed.
