In a statement by the director Strategic Communications and Information, NCCSALW, Group Captain Pius Okwuego, Major General AM Dikko (rtd), the pioneer national coordinator of NCCSALW, highlighted his efforts in steering the Centre in the right direction during his tenure.


He expressed confidence in the ability of the incoming national coordinator to build upon the foundation laid and take the centre to greater heights.

Kokumo in his remarks, acknowledged the achievements of his predecessor and pledged to continue the good work in fulfilling the centre's mandate.

The highpoint of the ceremony was the official signing of handover notes and transfer of documents between the outgoing and incoming national coordinators.

“The National Centre for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons remains committed to its mission of eradicating the menace of illicit small arms and light weapons proliferation in Nigeria, and looks forward to achieving even greater milestones under the leadership of Kokumo,” the statement reads.
