The Commandant General (CG) of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Abdullahi Gana, who was reported to have handed over the mantle of leadership yesterday, may have been asked to remain in office pending official communication from the Presidency as lobbyists make last minute efforts to extend the tenure of the outgoing CG.

According to reliable sources who spoke to PRNigeria on the matter, there was no official directive from the Presidency for him to hand over as of yesterday when he clocked 58 years, following the expiration of his six months extended tenure on January 17, 2021.

The federal government through the Ministry of Interior had extended the tenure of the Gana by six months in July 2020.

The NSCDC spokesman, Emmanuel Okeh, had in a statement on July 19 said the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbeshola had approved the extension of the tenure of the NSCDC boss for a six-month period effective from July 17, 2020 to January 2021.

A source very close to the NSCDC Boss told PRNigeria that Commandant General still has two years ahead before retiring from service.

The source said: “The CG Abdullahi Gana still has more years in the service because by age, he is 58 years as of yesterday by year of working experience, he has just spent 28years, which means he still has either two years to clock sixty years of age or seven years to reach 35 years in the service.

“As I am talking to you now, he is awaiting further official directives from the Presidency,” the source said.

PRNigeria also gathered that there is frantic lobbying of powerful individuals at the Presidency to reverse the earlier decision made to appoint the Deputy Commandant General of Commandant-General (CG) in charge of Operation and most senior officer at NSCDC, DCG Hilary Kelechi Madu, as the acting Commandant General of the corps.

According to sources, Madu, who was billed to have taken over from Gana whose extended tenure of six months expired on January 18, 2021, may be forced to wait longer as efforts are made to extend his boss’ stay in office.
