The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has pledged that the national assembly will legislate appropriately to ensure funding for the re-launched the War Against Indiscipline Brigade which has been renamed the Community Support Brigade if the volunteers remain committed to their mandate.
The Senate President gave this pledge at the flagging off ceremony of the Community Support Brigade organized by the National Orientation Agency in Abuja
Senator Ekweremadu charged the 3,000 volunteer members of the brigade to also help uncover security threats in the society by providing relevant information as part of efforts to stem terrorist activities in the country
Speaking earlier, the Minister of Culture, tourism and national orientation, Edem Duke, charged members of the brigade to justify the confidence reposed on them by making sure they enforce good values and attitudinal change
While making an appeal for budgetary allocation for the brigade, the Director General of NOA, Mike Omeri said the agency has renamed and re-branded the brigade to make it more service oriented and people friendly
War Against Indiscipline Brigade, which was established in 1984, came to serve as a potent instrument to instill discipline among Nigerians. The organization was then handed over to the National Orientation Agency in 1993 as a voluntary outfit.
