The Police Service Commission (PSC) has approved the promotion of 64 officers of the Nigerian Police force.

18 Commissioners of Police were promoted to Assistant Inspectors-General of Police. others include 37 Commissioners of Police and nine Deputy Commissioners of Police.

The PSC chairman, Mike Okiro said the promotions was in line with the commission’s resolve to promote professionalism and re-position the force.

According to Punch, “Okiro congratulated the officers and demanded from them hard work and dedication to duty; He said the commission will hold any of them personally responsible for any failure in the discharge of their duties.”

The  Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris reportedly urged President Muhammadu Buhari to retire 30 senior officers of the force.

This however did not go down well in some quarters, as a former Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ogbonnaya Onovo condemned the move, saying it is not fair.
