He explained that people have had misgivings about the legion due to some members misconducts, emphasizing the essence of the legion to create jobs.
“The idea is to get them jobs to do and the service we know best is security. We are deployed to government offices and private homes but we are not in competition with any security outfit,” he stated.

Col. Gayya commended the Delta state command for remembering them, just as he noted the impossibility of reaching out to all widows across the country.
“It is utterly impossible to reach out to all the widows in the country. Some state chairmen are doing well, others are not. Please do not sell these items but do what will get you something to support your family,” he advised the widows.
The state commandant, Corps Commander Anthony Ohiri, while congratulating the new corps of coaqmmissionaires, urged them to “maintain high level of ethical standards” at all times and live above board in rendering service to their fatherland.
