Asked to comment on the sudden up surge in the number of applicants for the NSCDC, Okeh said the development was not unexpected considering the large number of unemployed persons in the country.

He also attributed the large turn out to the fact that many youths are interested in joining the Corps given its remarkable and excellent outings in the country over the years.

When asked to give insights if the recruitment would be done based on allocations per state, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) said the ball is in the Court of the Board but added that the Federal Character principle would be reflected on the exercise.

Okeh said the Management of the NSCDC would be glad if the number of intakes into the Corps increased based on budgetary allocations by the Federal Government and the Board as there is need for manpower in the organisation.
