An NGO, has called on the Inspector-General of Police(IGP) Ibrahim Idris and the Police Service Commission to ensure impartiality in the ongoing promotion in the Nigeria police.
The group made the call during a joint news briefing in Abuja on Friday by Mr Olaseni Shalom and Mr Pelumi Olajengbesi, the Executive Director and the Executive Secretary of the organisation respectively.
Olajengbesi, appealed to the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, to ensure that there was transparency in the exercise, adding that it should be devoid of ethnicity, nepotism and political interests.
We know that people can be denied promotion from past wrong doings and queries but we are saying that anybody who has diligently served and is entitled to promotion should be promoted, he said.
Oh his part, Shalom said that it was the duty of the IGP to recommend policemen due for promotion to the Police Service Commission.
Shalom urged the commission and the Federal Government to ensure that no officer who deserved promotion was denied.
