The Edo State Command of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has decorated 307 newly promoted officers.
Decorating the officers on behalf of the Comptroller General (CG) of NCoS, Haliaru Nababa, the Controller of Edo State Command, Mrs Philomena Emehinola, said that 77 of the promoted officers were in the state headquarters in Benin, while the others were in the various divisions of the command.
She said, “Today is a great day in our lives. For the first time in our history, a large number of people are being decorated. We have a total number of 307 persons promoted. In the headquarters alone, we have 74.
“This is an elevation to do more in the job; more responsibility has been put on your shoulders. I urge you to carry the flag of the Nigerian Correctional Service high because it is no longer business as usual.”
She noted that the new CG had zero tolerance for a nonchalant attitude to work.
