He said: “Two Com­mis­sion­ers of Po­lice, Ig­bodo O. David, CP Le­gal, Force Head­quar­ters, and Olalekan Ab­dul­fa­tai, CP, Works also of Force Head­quar­ters, were pro­moted as sub­stan­tive As­sis­tant In­spec­tors Gen­eral of Po­lice (AIG).

Oth­ers, whose pro­mo­tions were ap­proved by the com­mis­sion, were 1,922 As­sis­tant Su­per­in­ten­dents of Po­lice (ASPs) pro­moted to Deputy Su­per­in­ten­dents.

He said the pro­mo­tions have been for­warded to the Inspector Gen­eral of Po­lice (IG) for im­ple­men­ta­tion in a let­ter signed by Mr. Musa Isi­ti­fanus, Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary/ Sec­re­tary to the com­mis­sion.

Af­ter much spec­u­la­tion, the im­me­di­ate past Gov­er­nor of Ondo State, Oluse­gun Mimiko, yes­ter­day re­signed his mem­ber­ship of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) with a plan to re­turn to Labour Party (LP).

The de­ci­sion of Mimiko was ex­pressed in a let­ter he ad­dressed to the PDP chair­man in Ondo West Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area.

The let­ter put paid to the months of spec­u­la­tion on whether Mimiko would dump PDP and re­turn to LP.

Mimiko, a two term gov­er­nor of Ondo State, was elected on the plat­form of the LP in 2007 but was not sworn in un­til Fe­bru­ary 2009 when the Court of Ap­peal in Benin-city de­clared him the win­ner of the 2007 elec­tion.
