As the governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun States draw near, men and officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have pledged their readiness for the exercise.
This is as Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola, warned security agencies in the state against compromising their oaths of service in the task of protecting, maintaining and sustaining peaceful atmosphere before, during and after the conduct of the August 9 governorship election in the state.
Zonal Commander of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Zone Four, Oladapo Jacob Amujare, gave the pledge when he paid Aregbesola a courtesy visit in his office.
Amujare, who commended the governor for the relative peace being enjoyed in Osun, said that the peace has engendered progress and unusual tangible and intangible developmental revolution since the beginning of Aregbesola’s assumption of office.
He said the government has demonstrated that it values and recognises the importance of security by ensuring a robust interaction among heads of security agencies in the state.
