Daily Trust - - NEWS -

A civil so­ci­ety or­gan­i­sa­tion, Of­fice of the Cit­i­zen of the Fed­eral Re­pub­lic of Nige­ria (OCFRN) has com­mended Act­ing Pres­i­dent Yemi Os­in­bajo, for sus­pend­ing the on­go­ing pro­mo­tion ex­er­cise in the Nige­rian Po­lice Force (NPF).

OCFRN’s con­vener, Mr Pe­lumi Ola­jengbesi, who briefed news­men on Thurs­day in Abuja, said that the ac­tion had shown that the Fed­eral Govern­ment was re­spon­sive and re­spon­si­ble.

Ola­jengbesi, un­der the aus­pices of United Global Re­solve for Peace (UGRFP), had re­cently called on Os­in­bajo to in­ter­vene in al­leged one-sided pro­mo­tion ex­er­cise in the Po­lice.

He said the group pe­ti­tioned the Act­ing Pres­i­dent, In­spec­tor­Gen­eral of Po­lice and Po­lice Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (PSC) over al­le­ga­tions of eth­nic­ity, nepo­tism and favouritism in the pro­mo­tion ex­er­cise.

The le­gal practitioner, who is also the ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary of UGRFP, had al­leged that no fewer than 72 ag­grieved po­lice­men lodged com­plaints with the group over de­nial of their pro­mo­tions. (NAN)
