As parts of the efforts to reward excellence, hard work and competence in the course of duty, Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s president has approved the special promotion of police officers.
Adamu was also quoted to have said that Presiden Buhari has also promised to renovate and build new barracks for officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force in order to bring out the best in them.
Speaking with newsmen after addressing top ranking police officers in the Oyo state Police command, the IG at the State Police Command headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan said the president is aware of the efforts of the Nigerian police command and he is ready to reward excellence.
He said: “We met with the southwest governors and traditional rulers on Monday and we discussed security situation within the South West geopolitical zone and we came out with numbers of resolutions that will be implemented.
“In implementing these resolutions, it is you officers and men of the command with the support of our special forces that the resolutions from that summit can be implemented.
“For you to do that, we must empower you to be able to do that.
“We are all appreciative of the fact that you have been hard working, you have been doing a lot to keep this region a safe place for business to thrive.
‘’We know there are some isolated challenges here and there, but without your presence, without your input, without your dedication in fighting crime, the situation would have been worse.
“Your efforts will not go unnoticed. The Federal Government is aware of all your efforts that you have been making, not only officers within this geo-political zone, but officers and men all over the country.
“The President has instructed me that any police officer, especially within the cadre of junior ones, anyone that excels must be promoted for that performance that he or she has done.
‘’For those of you that are working and excelling in performing your duties. So, I will encourage you to put in more efforts so as to benefit from this special promotion.”
