We’ll Revisit Police Promotion Exercise To Correct Disparity – Idris

Ibrahim-Kpotun-IdrisThe acting Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, said on Friday that the police would soon review cases of its personnel eyeing elevation to new ranks.

Idris said this at an interactive session with journalists in Minna, the Niger State capital after paying a courtesy visit on Governor Abubakar Bello.

“The cases of police personnel approved for further education and who obtained additional qualification will be reviewed so that those entitled for promotion will be promoted.

“In looking into their cases we will follow the rule of law or the Police Service Regulation.

“We are going to revisit it, if there is anybody that was due for promotion and has not been promoted we will do so.

“If the law or regulation says a personnel will be promoted after serving for certain period we will do that.

“We will revisit it and if there was any miscarriage of justice we will correct it”, he was quoted as saying to journalists.

Idris also said the police would do everything possible to ensure security of lives and property within the country.

“In a few days, you will see what we are going to do in terms of strengthening security.

“We are going to work side by side with the public to tackle crime in our society”, he added.

Also speaking at the forum, Bello said the state government would partner the police to ensure security of lives and property in the state.

“We need your support in terms of security of lives and property in our state”, the governor told journalists.
