Police can no longer be promoted without exams, says commission


The Police Service Commission says police officers will no longer be promoted to the next rank without the requisite training programmes and examinations.

A statement by the commission’s Head, Press and Public Relations, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, said the commission’s Chairman, Mr Musiliu Smith disclosed this at a meeting with the authorities of the Nigeria Police Force on Friday in Abuja.

“From now and henceforth, one of the conditions for promotion must be attendance and passing the senior Command Course for senior officers and other prescribed courses for others,” he said.

“Officers recruited to work in the workshop, signals and other professional departments/units should be left and encouraged to pursue their careers,” he said.

In his remark, the IGP said that the management was determined to transform the force to a more people-friendly organization.
