Osun NSCDC Cooperative Society Distributes Vehicles to Staff –


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Osun State Command through its staff Cooperative Investments and Credit Society Limited (CICS) distributed one (1) Toyota Highlander, two (2) Toyota Corolla and six (6) Mini bus to personal NSCDC.

This is part of efforts to ameliorate some of the financial challenges that its staff face and contribute to efficient service delivery.

A statement from the command’s public relations, Atanda Olabisi, said the gesture was aimed at improving the quality of life of personnel serving in the Osun State command and reducing the heavy burden of salary expenses, which is the only source of income for officers.

While declaring the empowerment program open, the Deputy Commanding General in charge of J Area, CAG Fasiu Adeyinka, who handed over the vehicles to the beneficiaries, praised the initiatives of Osun NSCDC CICS, for the amazing contributions.

He noted that the gesture will improve the staff’s dedication to duty, saying the empowerment program will boost the morale of the staff to carry out their duties effectively.

Adeyinka said the distribution of the vehicles goes hand in hand with the Commanding General’s vision to give deserved attention to personnel welfare, noting that Commanding General Audi Abubakar is laying a solid foundation for the Corps to be the best agency for security of the country in terms of protecting lives, infrastructure and investments. He congratulated the State Commander, Commander Emmanuel Ocheja, who showed exemplary concern for the well-being of the officers and men of the command.

Speaking on the reason behind the purchase of vehicles for members of the cooperative society, the chairman of the cooperative, Deputy Corps Commander (ACC) Ayodeji Ogundoyin said the move is in response to the current economic challenges in the country, hence the need for the empowerment program to reduce poverty among staff.

The president of the cooperative further explained that the leaders have critically reviewed the state of the economy in Nigeria and come up with ideas on how to improve the financial situation of the members.

According to Ogundoyin, the first phase of the empowerment program was the distribution of twenty (20) TVS motorcycles, sixty (60) Bajaj Boxer motorcycles. He said the leaders went further by distributing fifty (50) Bajaj Boxer motorcycles in the third phase, along with twenty (20) industrial sewing machines and ten (10) ordinary sewing machines.

Ogundoyin said, “We still have other projects that we intend to embark on, in order to enjoy more sources of income for the families of our members, I want to call on the beneficiaries to comply with the plans of refund. Failure to comply may result in forfeiture of ownership of the vehicles for the benefit of our cooperative society”.

He advised the beneficiaries to insure, secure and properly maintain the vehicles through regular maintenance and other upkeep measures to keep the vehicles in good condition.

While speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Assistant Superintendent I Corps (ASC I) Olayioye Abiodun, appreciated the NSCDC, Osun State Command, CICS for distributing the vehicles. He said it is expedient to look for alternative ways to meet ever-increasing human needs.

He further said that the gesture will contribute to better service delivery and comfort their family members, saying that “as a father, owning a vehicle is not a luxury but a necessity.”
