Police Service Commission Approves Appointment and Deployment of New Commissioners of Police
The Police Service Commission (PSC) has given its approval for the appointment and deployment of eight new Commissioners of Police to various State Commands across the nation.
This announcement was conveyed through a statement released to the press on Friday, as reported by Naija News.
Gender Sensitivity and Commendation
The PSC commended the acting Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, for demonstrating adherence to the latest policy on gender sensitivity in his recommendation.
This reflects the commission’s commitment to promoting gender equality within the police force.
Call for Inclusion of Underrepresented Geopolitical Zones
While acknowledging the progress made in terms of gender representation, the Commission urged the IGP to prioritize the inclusion of more officers from the North East and South East geopolitical zones.
These zones are yet to meet the benchmark of 15 percent representation, as decided during the last Plenary Meeting of the PSC.
Newly Appointed State Commissioners of Police
The eight newly appointed State Commissioners of Police are as follows: Godwin Aghaulor, now CP Borno State Command; Adelesi E. Oluwarotimi, CP Kwara State Command; Adebola Ayinde Hamzat, CP Oyo State Command; Augustina Ogbodo, CP Ebonyi State Command; Samuel Titus Musa, CP Kebbi State Command; Aderemi Olufemi Adeoye, CP Anambra State Command; Stephen Olarewaju, CP Imo State Command; and Alamatu Abiodun Mustapha, CP Ogun State Command.
Dr. Solomon Arase, the Chairman of the Police Service Commission, expressed satisfaction with the recommendations made by the acting Inspector General of Police.
He described the postings as fair and inclusive, particularly commending the IGP for his efforts in including women in these appointments.
The Police Service Commission’s approval of the appointment and deployment of new Commissioners of Police signifies ongoing efforts to strengthen the leadership of State Commands across Nigeria.
The commendation of the acting Inspector General of Police for adhering to gender sensitivity policies highlights the importance of promoting diversity and inclusivity within law enforcement.
However, the call for increased representation from underrepresented geopolitical zones emphasizes the need for further progress in ensuring equitable representation within the police force.
The appointment of the new State Commissioners of Police demonstrates the commitment to placing capable individuals in key positions to enhance security and maintain law and order.
Overall, the Police Service Commission’s actions reflect its dedication to creating a balanced and effective police force for the nation.
