The Minister of Interior, Hon. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo has said that the Nigerian government will build a security architecture that is unsurmountable.

The Minister stated this on Thursday in Abuja during his maiden visit to the headquarters of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

He said the federal government under President Bola Tinubu will support the corps to excel.

“We will not only be there for you, but the government will always have your back. Whatever you need to succeed, the president is committed and to it.

Speaking further, the minister urged them to treat Nigerians with respect.

“I want to plead with you to treat Nigerians with respect in all you do. Being in uniform is not an excuse to abuse the rights of Nigerians. Treat Nigerians with respect.
“The female squad is novel within our clime and this is what Nigeria is about. This is the Nigerian spirit -innovation backed up with excellence.
“With the capacity that I have seen today, I know we are not too far from what we need to secure our country. We will give you the needed support and together we will build a security architecture that no level of insecurity can penetrate.
“In line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of this administration, we will not just be there for you, the government will have your back.
“Your job is very key and with proper efforts, harnessing your qualities and capacities, coupled with your capabilities, the simple truth is that we can reduce the way our armed forces are being stretched. I assure you that whatever is needed for you to succeed, the president is committed to it.”

The minister commended the personnel of the Corps who are African champions in Karate.

“The era when performance and excellence were attenuated and perhaps some other factors were amplified is over. That era is over. When you perform uniquely, distinctly and exceptionally, you will be recognized exceptionally.”
