The police service commission has Explains that Promotions of senior Police Officers are based on availability of vacancies, seniority and free of any pending disciplinary matter and merit.
Reacting to a comment by OHANEZE INDI IGBO, the commission in a statement says there are laid down rules, regulations and conditions which an Officer must satisfy.
The Commission reiterate that it also allows the Inspector General of Police who is the operational head of the Police to recommend qualified and deserving Officers to the Commission for Promotion. The commission added that it does not approve Promotion of any Police Officer based on ethnic or any other consideration.
It also debunked the rumour that Commissioners of Police in the South East are all from the North.
Meanwhile, Just recently, an Igbo son, the former Commissioner of Police in charge of Budget who was promoted to the rank Deputy Inspector General of Police and deployed as DIG A, to oversee Administration and Finance, a very sensitive Department in the Police Management team.
The Commission wishes to assure the leadership of the OHANEZE Ndigbo that it will at no time consciously marginalize any section of the country in the Promotion and deployment of senior Police Officers.
The Commission will continue to be guided by the established rules guiding Promotions in the police and in the larger interest of the Nigerian nation.
