Eighty additional senior officers were promoted to new positions and two new Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs) were decorated by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in Kebbi.
The promotions came about as a result of the Inspector General of Police’s (IGP) proposal and the Police Service Commission’s approval, according to Chris Aimionowane, the state’s Commissioner of Police (CP), who presented the decorations to the policemen in Birnin Kebbi on Tuesday.
On behalf of the IGP, he thanked the recently promoted officers and urged them to be more diligent in carrying out their responsibilities.
Aimionowane exhorted the officers to view their promotion as incentive and more responsibility in addition to acknowledging their diligence and commitment to service.
In order for them to merit further advancements within the Force, he also counseled them to maintain discipline and allegiance to legitimate authorities.
DCP Ali Yusuf praised Allah in the name of the promoted officers for saving their lives so they could be present for the “memorable day” in good health.
He also conveyed their sincere appreciation to the PSC and the IGP for their kind recommendations and approvals of their promotions. He said that the police would work twice as hard to carry out their duties as effectively as possible.
Alhaji Nura Fingila, the state commissioner for youths and sports, praised the CP’s enormous accomplishments in his mission to eradicate all criminal activity and crimes from the state.
He also applauded the state’s visibility policing strategy and the CP’s open-door policy and courtesy toward the public.
