D’Banj gets special appointment from Civil Defense

1 Mins read

Nigerian singer and songwriter, D’banj has been appointed as an agro-ranger by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

D’Banj, known as Dapo Oyebanjo in a statement on Saturday by his corporate manager, Damien Okoroafor, commended the Federal Government for its agro-rangers initiative undertaken by the NSCDC.

The agro-rangers programme inaugurated in mid-2016 is expected to forestall attacks on farms, boost farmers’ confidence to work on their farms without fear and to enhance the Federal Government’s food security plan.

D’banj said he would dedicate his life and personal effort to put the country and the NSCDC on the global map and ensure that the insecurity challenges suffered by Nigerian farmers would be a thing of the past.

He said;

“I find this initiative undertaken by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps as a wonderful opportunity to serve my country ”

“Organisations or agencies such as the NSCDC need the support of the general public to do so effectively since they were established to protect Nigerian citizens. Being myself a farmer of over 15 years, I very well understand the challenges suffered by farmers as incessant and re-occurring attacks stifle production and productivity.”

Earlier, NSCDC boss Commandant-General Abdullahi Mohammadu who decorated the singer on Friday, said the agro-rangers initiative was part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s strategy to protect lives and property of farmers, create jobs as well as guarantee food security in the country.

He urged D’banj to always promote the initiative as government had concluded plans to employ young people in the 36 states of the country and FCT as agro-rangers.
