The Police Service Commission yesterday approved the promotion of 13 new Chief Superintendents of Police (CSPs) to the rank of Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs) in a move it said was aimed at rewarding hard work and excellent commitment to duty.
At the end of its 31st plenary meeting in Abuja yesterday, Chief Information Officer of the Commission, Ferdinand Ekpe, said the members took far reaching decisions on ways to reposition the force.
According to him, one of those decisions was to approve the promotion of the officers, which he said was part of the commission’s resolve to reward all hardworking and deserving police officers with promotion to the next ranks.
He listed the new ACPs to include; Ojeka Odama Paul; Edung Patrick Ogon; Kayode Akande Sikiru; Arop Augustine; Lawal Badara Banji; Adelayo Adewoye Olukayode and Onyeka B. Nnamdi.
Others are Yusuf Suleiman; Anyasinti Josephine Nneka; Godwin N; Ekot Effiom Emmanuel; Kanayochukwu Ude Stanley and Mozie Charles Ifeatu.
“Similarly, the commission approved the promotion of four Superintendents of Police to Chief Superintendents. Also, a Deputy Superintendent of Police and an Assistant Superintendent of Police were elevated to the rank of Superintendent and Deputy Superintendent respectively.
All the promotions are with effect from the 3rd of October, 2012,” Ekpe said.
He quoted the Chairman of the commission, Mr. Parry Osayande, as urging the officers to live up to the new responsibilities their elevation had placed on them.
