Buhari’s Minister, Aregbesola issues strong directive to NSCDC


The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has charged Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, to focus on intelligence gathering.
Aregbesola, a former governor of Osun State explained that since NSCDC was not the lead agency in internal security, it should focus on intelligence gathering.

Speaking when he visited the headquarters of NSCDC in Abuja yesterday, Aregbesola said one of his fundamental objectives would be to improve internal security.
Aregbesola also stated that the ministry under his watch would key into the policy of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
He unveiled three focal points his ministry will focus on to include: Security, Economic improvement and Transparency (SET), as the operational framework for agencies under the ministry.

The newly inaugurated Minister said: “Since you are not the lead internal security agency, you must improve your intelligence gathering.
“The early warning capacity your agency provides to others will help reduce threats.
“My emphasis is on early warning part of security that will help sister agencies work better. Rather than being reactive, we will be proactive.

“We must adopt Buhari’s slogan in the way that it’s best suited for us. So, we will adopt ‘SET’ in this ministry, which means security, economic improvement and transparency,” Aregbesola noted
