The Honourable Minister of Interior Lt. Gen Abdulrahman Danbazzu (rtd) on his working visit to the North-East to assess the condition of the affected victims of insurgent attacks presently at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camps in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa State respectively assured them of Government’s determination to end the insurgency for them to return back home in due cause.
The Honourable Minister who was accompanied by the Comptroller Generals of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Prison Service and the Commandant General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), applauded the efforts of the Security forces aimed at putting to an end the Insurgency.
Danbazzu who could not hide his feelings attributed the gallantry and efforts of the personnel of the NSCDC to the Military training received from the Armed Forces.
He said as a GOC and Chief of Army Staff, he saw the prospect in the Corps and gave a nod to the training of the personnel on arms bearing and also established a synergy where the Army personnel partnered with the Corps personnel in tackling act of vandalism.
Recently, at the Corps Academy, Sauka, Abuja he applauded the effort of the Corps in establishing fish pond dedicated to feeding the dogs at the kernel
However,the news being peddling by some on-line media Houses alleging that the Honourable Minister of Interior LT.General Abdulrahman Daubazzu (rtd) converts SSS officer to a “shoe shiner” is baseless fraudulent and malicious.It is a diversionary tactics of the evil ones to cast as persion on the personality of the Minister.
The Honourable Minister who was on a visit to NSCDC facilities at Sauka never beckoned on any of his aides to come and clean his shoe as alleged rather, if the “aid” carried out such a function, it means, it was done voluntarily without any iota of compulsion. The demonstration by the SSS personnel was a mark of respect for his principal since he was not compelled to do so.
It should also be noted that, a man of the calibre of the Minister who was one time Chief of Army staff is entitled to aids that could help in ensuring that he looks neat at all times.
