The Commandant General of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Abdullahi Gana, Monday, retired from the service, following the expiration of his tenure on January 17, 2021.
Blueprint reliably gathered that the next in command to Gana, DCG Operation, Kelechi Madu, has taken over in acting capacity for now.
Sources told our correspondent that Gana, 58, addressed his staff this morning at the headquarters of the Corps where he told them of his exit.
A dependable source said the handing-over was done behind the closed door.
After the short handing over ceremony, another source told our correspondent that the new Comptroller General addressed the staff that he has fully taken over and sought for their cooperation.
Gana’s tenure was extended by six months when his tenure expired in July, 2020, by the federal government.
