The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Osun State Command, has decorated 746 newly promoted officers.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Command’s spokesperson, Adeleke Kehinde and obtained by DAILY POST on Saturday.
The Osun NSCDC Commandant, Agboola Sunday, while decorating the newly promoted officers at the headquarters in Osogbo, described the promotion as an award of excellence, dedication, hard work, loyalty and discipline.
