Police get eight new DIGs
The Police Service Commission (PSC) on Tuesday the emergence of eight Deputy Inspectors General of Police (DIGs).
Four of the officers were promoted from the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG).
They are – Dan’Azumi Job Doma, Mamman Ibrahim Tsafe, David O. Omojola, Solomon E. Arase, Christopher K. Katso and Salihu Argungu Hashidu.
Two others – Hilary Opara and Sotonye Wakama were promoted to DIG from the rank of Commissioner of Police.
A statement by the Assistant Director, Press and Public Relations of the PSC, Mr. Ferdinand Ekpe, said the promotions take immediate effect.
The Commission also re-affirmed its earlier decision that promotion of officers starting from the ranks of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) up to the rank of AIG would not be automatic.
According to the PSC, they would only be done after the affected officers must have passed their promotion interviews.
The PSC had, at its 6th plenary, held on August 12 reviewed the time limit within which aggrieved police officers can lodge complaints against punishment meted to them up to 30 days.
It has also availed aggrieved officers the opportunity to appeal directly to the Commission where the police authorities failed to implement corrective measures issued by the PSC in respect of aggrieved officers.
The Chairman of the PSC, Sir Mike Okiro, was quoted to have enjoined the newly promoted officers to see their elevation as opportunity to serve, imploring them to use their wealth of experience in uplifting the Force.
