…congratulates AIGs Aishatu, Olofu on National Honours

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has promoted a total of 31,465 policemen comprising 24,991 from Sergeants to Inspectors, 194 from Corporals to Sergeants, and 6,280 from Constables to Corporals.

This was contained in a press statement issued and signed by CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Force Public Relations Officer, in Abuja and made available via the Force’s Twitter handle.

CSP Adejobi said the promotion is part of the IGP’s manpower development policy targeted at promoting deserving police officers on the basis of competence, qualification, and length of service.

In the statement, the IGP charged the affected officers to add more pep in promoting the lofty principles and values of modern policing and discharge their duties as expected of them in line with the provisions of the extant laws.

Meanwhile, the IGP also congratulated two Assistant Inspectors-General of Police on the conferment of national honours on them. The very senior police officers include AIG Aishatu Abubakar, who was conferred with the award of Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON), and AIG Olofu Tony Adejoh, who was conferred with the individual award of National Productivity Order of Merit Award (NPOM) by the National Productivity Centre, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, on the approval of the immediate past president.

The IGP charged the senior officers to bring their experience gathered over time and the well-deserved national recognition to bear in their national policing duties.
