Nigeria: CACOL Wants Police Promotion Reviewed

A non-governmental organisation, Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL), said the recent promotion exercise in the Nigeria Police Force should be reviewed in order to give room for performance and integrity to be the criteria for promotion and posting.

Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran, who addressed a press conference in Abuja yesterday, called on the House of Representatives to set up public hearings where aggrieved officers can present complaints about the recent promotion and posting exercise in the force.

Adeniran said the Police Service Commission (PSC) and other authorities concerned should investigate allegations of examination malpractices against former DCP Tunde Ogunsakin, who was seconded to the EFCC as Director of Operations and was promoted to Commissioner of Police in the recent promotion exercise carried out by the force.
