The remaining two new DIGs who were elevated from the rank of police commissioners are: Ogbizi Michael, former Abia State police commissioner, and Ibrahim Lamorde, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) who hails from Adamawa State.
Nigeria Moment is of the view that the promotion and consequent actions in the service will attract better condition for the nation and Africa as a whole. One major area that is confronting the Nigeria Police Force which the new IGP must tackle head-on is the issue of extortion “broad day robbery” on major roads in the federation mainly in the South East region. The new DIGs were named on Monday morning and their respective portfolios would be announced later on Monday by the Police Service Commission. While we congratulate the successful officers elevated to new offices, it is important that the authorities of the force considers the adoption of reward of officers based on conduct and services crowned with commitment to duties as an encouragement to the men and officers of not only police but other security agencies.
Their elevation comes a day after Adamu retired seven DIGs who were his senior in order to pave way for the constitution of a new management team with whom he could work comfortably.
The retired DIGs, who were Adamu's senior in the force, served with former IGP Ibrahim Idris.
They are: DIGs in charge of Finance & Administration, (Maigari Dikko); Operations (Habila Joshak); Information & Communications Technology (Emmanuel Inyang); Logistics & Supply (Agboola Oshodi-Glover); Research & Planning (Mohammed Katsina); Training & Development (Sani Mohammed) and Federal Criminal Investigation & Intelligence (Peace Ibekwe-Abdallah). Those who were elevated must reciprocate by exhibiting high standard of professionalism which will earn Nigeria respect internationally especially now that elections are coming. There capacities must be tried.
