Meanwhile, NewsOne Nigeria reports that the new Nigeria police promotion will be coming after some aggrieved officers of the force expressed bitterness over what they described as injustice and promotion of less qualified candidates in the last promotion under the former Inspector-General of Police.

Last year, the Police Service Commission suspended all pending police promotions in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) until further notice following the PSC’s dispute with the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, over the recruitment of 10,000 constables into the NPF.

In September 2019, TUC demanded that the PSC should withdraw all delegated powers extended to the IGP since it has been abused. The meeting in September 2019 rose with a Management decision to endorse the demand and stand of the Union that the Commission must seek judicial interpretation of its constitutional mandate for the appointment, which has been at the centre of the dispute.

The highlight of the decisions taken at the meeting reads as thus, “The meeting rose with a management decision to endorse the demand and stand of the union that the commission must seek judicial interpretation of its constitutional mandate for the appointment which has been at the centre of the dispute.

“The management also agreed with the union that all police promotions will be suspended until further notice. The union had also demanded that the commission withdraw all delegated powers extended to the IG since they have been abused.”
