According to him, NSCDC has to create the base to give adequate safety cover to the people living in the area .

“Now, we have a base here with a patrol boat to intensify our efforts in managing disaster around the area.

“Kabiyesi had earlier told us that there was market in the community before but due to insecurity nobody was coming to do their marketing.

“Now, with our presence here, the market will resuscitate and people will come back and it will also boost the economy of the community,” he said.
