  1. The commandant is most unqualifd.He ought to b just a corporal.Wrong appointmnt! Do u need 2 b in lagos 2 visit website?

  2. It’s a shame that only idiots like dis get most of government jobs in dis country. How can a state head of NSCDC not know his organisations website, he should be sacked immediately as he’s proving he’s incapacity to handle d job.

  3. Waoh! What is the academic qualification of this so-called “commandant”? You see how square pegs are put in round holes in this country?

  4. Little things that cost so much **coughs**. A commandant that has been serving for some years now, hw do u defend yourself on this issue. Many top govt officials are also clueless of their web add.

  5. Durin recruitement process, dis bag of rank nd appointment ll drop candidate for poor performance, I̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ written nd oral test. Sorryyyyyy

  6. In fact, I watched the recorded scene repeatedly and started laughing. The way the man was trying to parry the question thrown to him, using questions to answer questions with boldface.

  7. If we saw this clip in a movie, we’d all think the writer and the producers were idiots! But here, live on channels TV, should he even be qualified to be a gateman? Smh
