"Hard work and dedication to duties are crucial to maintaining your new status."

The NSCDC boss admonished officers and men of the corps who were yet to be promoted not to be discouraged, but continue to discharge their duties diligently.

Kayode Balogun, the Command Public Relations Officer who was promoted and decorated with the rank of Deputy Superintendent, said the promotion would motivate him to do more.

Balogun said he would double his efforts and be more diligent in the discharge of his duties.
