Civil defence corps begins bio-metric data exercise

NSCDC personnel

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp, NSCDC, has commenced Bio-metric data of its officers nation-wide.

The bio-metric data is meant to establish a central data base for the corps to allow for proper documentation of all officers and men.

According to the NSCDC Commandant General, Ade Abolurin, the bio-metric data is part of the programmes initiated by top management to enable the organisation to meet the standards set by the International Civil Defence Organisation, ICO.

He explained that the bio-metric exercise is also meant to keep records and make information of every member accessible at all time.

The data, Mr. Abolurin said, will allow for updating, which means all information regarding length of service, transfer, posting, promotion, course attended, skills acquired, health and other important information about each officer could be retrieved within a very short period.

“This is a better and accurate way to identify individuals. Anybody can fake identity card but not your fingerprint,” he said.

Mr. Abolurin said the bio-metric data will reduce incidences of fraud, ghost workers, and other problems associated with name resemblance.

He said it will also help improve prompt payment of salary and allowances.

The first phase of the bio-metric exercise will cover Oyo, Osun, Kwara, Ogun, Ekiti, Kogi, Edo and Abuja.

Whatever challenges observed in the pilot will then be corrected and implemented in other commands across the nation.

The exercise is due to end in the first quarter of 2015.

    Who The Loser would be!
    One would assume that the feverish tension in the land would be over after the election come March 28 and/April 11 but in reality, many will bask in the euphoria while not quite a few will sulk and lick their wounds secretly or in the open. This brings to mind who the Loser would be should APC wins or should PDP wins. If APC wins, part of the losers would be primarily Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, his Vice and indeed the First Lady – P. Jonathan. Second degree of losers would be Fayose, Fani-Kayode, Okupe, Abati, Edwin Clark and Obanikoro among others. There are also those who have made their money (big time) and so even if PDP loses, they’ll just, as Chief Bode George puts it, run away from Nigeria. People in this category are Bode George, Allinson Maduekwe, Tompolo, Asari Dokubo etc.
    The current leadership of CAN, Afenifere, etc will explain their position from the stand-point of the doctrine of necessity and move on as if nothing happened after they would have been disgraced for dragging the name of the institutions they represent in the murky waters of politicking.
    On the other hand, should PDP win, primary losers will be more of GMB than PROF Ohinbajo who will likely pick up his cassock and return to the pulpit. The wife of GMB will certainly not be as pained as her opponent at the other camp who has tasted the fritz and glamour of office – this however is not to say that she will not miss some things. Major casualties again will include the Jagaban of Borgu Sen Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Gov. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi and Kayode Fayemi who would have had occasion to relaunch into political power circle again. We won’t deny the fact that the Ebora Owu Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. Having been dusted by GEJ group, the best thing that would happen to Uncle Sege would have been the enthronement of GMB. Thus he would have been able to move freely not only in Abuja but Aso Rock once again.

    Above all, the greatest losers would have been the generality of Nigerians, who desire to see a change in the old order; who wish something could happen to let us have somebody to manage the resources of the nation in the larger interest not parochial interest of the few anointed – such that will address the Power issue, our roads and indeed the refineries.

    Well one would say time indeed April/May will tell who the losers and winners would be.
