Disaster: Official calls for collaboration between NSCDC, Anambra

Mr Evaristus Obiyo, the State Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has called for collaboration between Anambra residents and the corps in disaster management.

Obiyo made the call during a mini event to mark the 2022 World Civil Day in his office on Tuesday in Awka.

He said that civil defence as a body is saddled with the responsibility to manage disaster and protect critical national assets.

The Anambra NSCDC official noted  that management of disaster in Anambra had not been easy adding that the masses do not understand the role of the corps.

“In Anambra when disaster occur, NSCDC usually cordon off the venue before rendering first aid service.

“But challenges we encounter are inadequacy of vehicles and other logistics which we continue to appeal that communities, local and state governments should support us”, he said.

Earlier Obiyo read address by Mr Yap Mariatou, General Secretary of International Civil Defence Organisation (ICDO).

He gave the theme of the celebration as; “Civil Defence and Management of Displaced Populations in Face of Disasters and Crises;Role of Volunteers and the Fight Against Pandemics”.

Mr Solomon Ekeokpara, deputy Commandant of the corps who admonished  officers and men in a talk told them to show more commitment in the discharge of their duties.
