The examination which was conducted under strict invigilation by officials from the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board (CDCFIB) and the NSCDC, commenced simultaneously Nationwide after all accreditations and necessary documentation were completed.

In his message, the Commandant General, Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, congratulated and wished them success as they write the examination while at the same time giving them stern warning to conduct themselves in a manner that portrays discipline, integrity and regimentation. 

He charged those writing the promotion examination to avoid acts capable of leading to their being disqualified or sanction in their career paths.

The NSCDC boss entreats them to make their best attempts as only merits and availability of vacancies will be considered as yardsticks for promotion of any personnel. 

“You don’t need to know anyone or have long legs before you will be considered for promotion. Under my leadership; merits and dedication to duty counts and mark you; the years of unnecessary roadblocks and stagnation are over too, because I will ensure a transparent process and equitable treatment for all my officers and men”, CG said.

He further intimated that the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board (CDCFIB) has adopted Computer-Based Testing (CBT) for the annual promotion exams for senior officers and advised all personnel to attend computer appreciation courses in preparation for the examination.

He reiterated that the Corps is working assiduously to upgrade all NSCDC training schools across the nation with the setting up of a 16man committee to develop standard curriculum for the Corps and very soon, Career Progression Development Courses will be introduced to different cadres of officers and men as a prerequisite for career advancement or promotion.

About four thousand personnel sat for this year’s Junior Promotion Examination exercise nationwide.

The Director, Public Relations, NSCDC, Mr. Olusola Odumosu, signed the statement on behalf of the CG.
