Osun State coordinator of the pioneer volunteers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp, Mr Sunday Oluwaremilekun Oyedokun gave the commendation in an interview with newsmen in Osogbo, the state capital.
Comrade Oyedokun particularly appreciated the effort of President Buhari for critically considering the pedigree of Ogbeni Aregbesola especially when he was the Commissioner of works Lagos State and the Governor of Osun State.
He expressed the conviction that Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola will bring his experience as a former commissioner and formal governor to bear as the interior minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Comrade Oyedokun therefore, implored Ogbeni Aregbesola not to disappoint the president in particular and the people of Lagos and Osun in general as the minister of the interior ministry.

Similarly, comrade Oyedokun implored the interior minister to look into the plights of the old volunteers of the civil defense Corp with a view to assisting them into the Corp.
According to him, most of the old volunteers who are the foundation member of the NSCDC are still agile to work if enlisted into the Corp.
He suggested that the offsprings of old volunteers should be captured into the NSCDC Incase of old age on the part of the old volunteers, this comrade Oyedokun noted should be done in other to compensate them for their meritorious service over the years for the para-military organization.
Comrade Oyedokun implored the top echelon of the NSCDC in collaboration with the interior ministry to invite all the coordinators of the pioneer volunteers of the NSCDC across the country to bring the authentic list of their members forward.
This, comrade Oyedokun said would guide the authorities of the NSCDC to consider enlisting some of the old horse into the fold of NSCDC.
