The CG reiterated his determination not to allow errant officers portray the corps in bad light under his leadership.

He said that the sanctions would serve as deterrent to others, as the corps will not condone any unethical conduct.

Audi called on all personnel to uphold the corps’ Standard Operating Procedure, Code of Ethics, discipline and adherence to Public Service Rules.

Audi however promised to reward officers and men who excel in their various assignments as a motivation for good conduct and dedication to service.
