For his giant strides as a serving officer, the management of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has approved a special promotion for 2014 International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Star Player, Aruna Quadri.
According to the Director of Sports, NSCDC, Ayodele Olusegun, Quadri’s global stride as well as his hard work and exploit earned him the special promotion sanctioned by the Commandant General, Ade Abolurin, whose support for athletes in the force has continued to grow.
“I want to say the Quadri has been a good ambassador of NSCDC and his exploits in table tennis globally has put the country on the world map. At NSCDC, we are touched by his determination and dedication to his trade and this has promoted the force under the leadership of sports loving Commandant General, Ade Abolurin to approve his special and accelerated promotion as an officer of the corps. From a Chief Corps Assistant (CCA), he has been promoted to Inspector of Corps and we will continue to support athletes like Quadri,” Olusegun said.
Quadri’s progress in table tennis has indeed brought a lot of attention to Nigeria and Africa and NSCDC has pledged its support to the player who recently signed for a French club from his Portugal team.
An elated Quadri expressed his appreciation to the corps particularly the Commandant General for his enormous support both morally and otherwise, while promising to continue to work hard to raise the profile of the corps globally.
“I am very happy for this promotion and I want to specifically thank the Commandant General for having a listening hear and for considering me for this promotion and also my Director of Sports, who has remained the pillar of support for most athletes in the corps. I promise to make the corps proud wherever I found myself and I hope this will encourage other athletes to aim high in their chosen field of sports,” Quadri said.
