Promotion of DIGs & AIGs tears police apart

25 February 2012

The strands of unity and discipline left in the Nigeria Police Force following the exit of former Inspector General of Police, Hafiz Abubakar Ringim and the appointment of Mohammed Dikko Abubakar, are threatening to boil over following Wednesdays’ promotion of 7 Deputy Inspectors General of Police and 13 assistant Inspectors General of Police with senior officers whose juniors were promoted above them, threatening to dump the force for DIG Parry Osayande led PSC and the Inspector General of Police, MD Abubakar.

Many of the senior officers particularly, Assistant Inspectors General of Police and very senior Commissioners of Police are irked that the same DIG Parry Osayande who has all along insisted that he is on a mission to cleanse the promotion and appointment structure of the force, and follow due process in appointment, discipline and promotion, is the one presiding and approving a promotion that is specifically aimed at frustrating and insulting the sensibilities of officers who have devoted their lives to the Nigeria Police force.

At the center of complaint and misgivings by the senior officers, are the promotion of junior Commissioners of Police over and above senior Commissioners as well as AIG’s some of whom have tested and impeccable track records that can stand the test of time.
