Police officers kick over promotion of colleagues

By Kingsley Omonobi

ABUJA—Hundreds of junior Police officers across the 36 states command and the force headquarters in Abuja are grumbling over the recent decision of the Police Service Commission, PSC, under the leadership of Parry Osayande (rtd), to promote several of their juniors over and above them contrary to the new policy thrust that emphasizes due process.

The Police officers Vanguard gathered, are irked that the same administration which ordered the demotion of former EFCC Chairman, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu because he was promoted far and above his seniors without recourse to promotion exams and due process, is also perpetrating the same injustice to hundreds of policemen who saw the Ribadu saga as an attempt to right the wrongs and injustices of many years.

The contention Vanguard learnt, was the promotion of 160 Deputy Superintendents of Police, DSP, to the rank of Superintendents of Police, SP, by the PSC on the recommendation of the Police hierarchy.
