Lopsided promotion killing discipline in Nigerian Police – Retired CP

Lopsided promotion killing discipline in Nigerian Police – Retired CP

A former Commissioner of Police in the Federal Capital Territory, Lawrence Alobi, has disclosed that, lopsided promotion in Nigerian Police is not good for the image of the Force.

The former commissioner spoke in an interview with Daily Trust said that such primordial consideration in promotion kills discipline within the system.

According to him, “It is not supposed to be so, because as a Cadet Inspector, you have to be first confirmed as an inspector.

“For me, it is surprising that an Inspector should even overtake an ASP to become an ACP while the Cadet ASP is still a CSP. That is lopsidedness and it is not supposed to be so.

“Honestly, it is very demoralising, and it kills discipline too. What outstanding job did the person perform to have that kind of speedy promotion over a cadet ASP to other ACP rank?”

Alobi called on the PSC and the Inspector-General of Police to ensure that such anomaly is corrected in order to redeem the image of the institution.

“They should follow the due process, and when the process is followed, it will make people understand that they need to learn how to do the right thing,” he said.
