“NSCDC with the core mandate of protecting critical national assets and infrastructure, it is committed to providing surveillance to the facilities.”

“This is not without challenges, we cannot do it all. That is why we crave synergy and collaboration with the NUJ and Correspondents’ chapel. This crusade cannot be ours alone.”

“Federal and Borno state governments have invested huge resources in the provision of networks of roads, drainages, railway, and power installations but are being vandalized by some unpatriotic people,” Musa said.
