PSC refutes marginalisation in police promotions


IGP Adamu

The Police Service Commission (PSC), yesterday, restated that it did not marginalize any part of the country in the promotion of officers of the Nigeria Police Force.

It explained that promotion in the Force was strictly guided by defined rules and regulations that have nothing to do with ethnic or religious considerations.


Head, Press and Public Relations at the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, said the commission had sensitised the officers and members of the public on the processes of recruitment, promotion and discipline in the Force and ensured that the processes were governed by established rules and regulations.

“The commission has contributed immensely in ensuring sanity in the recruitment of qualified Nigerians into the Nigeria Police Force where the principle of federal character and merit are considered.

“The PSC is a product of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and further consolidated by its Establishment Act 2001.

“At its inception in 2001, it met a recruitment process that needed to be made more transparent and inclusive through respect for the federal character principle such as advertisement of recruitment exercise, equality of states and merit,” the statement reads.
