Police Service Commission (PSC) has approved the promotion of 1,607 Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs) to the rank of Superintendents (SPs).

The Head of Press and Public Relations of PSC, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.Mr. Ani said the commission had earlier stepped down the consideration of the officers’ promotion at its last management meeting because of some discrepancies noticed in the list.He said among those promoted, 158 officers are in the professional cadre.They include 105 in the communication unit, 22 in transport, 10 medical officers, nine Nurses and another nine from works department.Others are six workshop officers, three maritime and one each from medical and dental unit and band.He said a total of 1,423 DSPs were promoted in the General Duty cadre.The Chairman of the commission, Dr Solomon Arase, said the promotion had restored the dignity of the specialists cadre in the Nigeria Police Force.Arase said the commission would continue to give equal opportunities to all cadres, adding that the era of stagnation of specialists in one rank has become history.He explained that the Nigeria Police Force needed the specialists for efficient and effective policing and pledged that the commission would continue to accord them the required privileges.The PSC chairman said general duty officers would also continue to receive the support of the commission in the area of prompt and regular promotions.He enjoined the newly promoted officers to reciprocate the gesture by rededicating themselves to the service of the nation.Arase warned that the commission would not hesitate to discipline any of the officers who undermines the ethics, rules and regulations guiding the service.
