Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Kano State Command has tasked its officers and men to strive hard by ensuring peace, harmony, safety of life and property.
This was contained in a statement issued on Thursday by the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSC Ibrahim Idris Abdullahi, CDPRO.
The State Commandant, Comdt Mohammed Lawal Falala, FCNA, made the assertion while declaring open a 1-day workshop organized by Peace and Conflict Resolution Unit to mark this year’s International Day of Peace.
Commandant Falala opined that peace as a panacea for solving problems associated with humanity needs to be prioritized by all and sundry, as no meaningful socio-economic development can be achieved without peace and tranquility.
He lauded the efforts of the peace and conflict resolution unit of the command for mediating and resolving myriad of civil cases brought before them, and charged them to do more so as to continue to win the trust and confidence of the good people of Kano.
This year’s International Day of Peace was celebrated by the command indoors amidst a 24hrs curfew imposed on the state to douse tension following yesterday’s pronouncement of Governorship election petition tribunal judgement.
