Police Promote 600 Officers in Rigorous Exercise, 40 New CP’S and 98 ACP’S Make it

December 23 10:27 2019

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has promoted over 600 officers in what sources say is the most prudent exercise in the last decade of the Nigerian Police Force.
It was learnt that the decisions taken over the exercise at the 7th plenary session of the commission presided over by its Chairman, Rtd Inspector-General of Police, Musiliu Smith held in Abuja last weekend was devoid of the now usual “lobbying anyhow” by undeserving officers.
Public Relations Officer of the Commission, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani in a statement Sunday afternoon after the gruesome meetings said that “the exercise was strictly based on seniority, merit, availability of vacancies and clean record services”.
He announced that 40 officers were promoted from Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) level to Commissioner of Police (CP); 98 from Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP usually called Area Commanders) to Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP); 150 Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) were moved to Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACP) while 335 Superintendent of Police (SP) were elevated to CSP positions.
Sources close to the PSC sessions said some officers who were hitherto moved by “the promotion by anyhow syndrome” were put on hold in the new meticulous exercise.
Of the 40 topmost officers promoted to CP rank, eighteen Yorubas were on the list, six of them were of the Igbo extraction while another six were female officers from all ethnic divide.
Former IGP Smith urged the promoted officers to rededicate themselves to National duties especially now that the Nation was going through several security challenges.
All the promoted officers are still waiting their new posting which will come from the office of the Inspector General of Police.
The new forty Commissioners of Police are Olatunji Agboola: Gbenga Sadiku Michael; Anyim Abraham Ekong; Bankole Anderson Abiodun; Ayinde Abu Mufutau; Kamisideen Okunola Kola; Ade Atere Christopher; Amieghema Andrew; Younous Akeera Mohammed; Sanomi Augustine Akpofura; Salami Bolaji Amidu; Michael C.
