PSC asks police officers due for retirement to proceed as IGP stays

Despite the retirement rules changed for the Inspector General of Police, the Police Service Commission (PSC), has advised all police officers due for retirement to proceed without delay.

The Commission said the ongoing campaign for the extension of the tenures of some Deputy Inspectors General (DIGs); Assistant Inspectors General (AIGs); Commissioners of Police (CPs) and other senior Police Officers was an “unnecessary distraction and an affront on all the existing laws in the country guiding entry and exit in the public service”.

In a statement on Tuesday by the Head, of Press and Public Relations, PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, stated that there is an institutional succession plan in the Nigeria Police.

It insisted that it is the statutory government executive body with the constitutional mandate to recruit, promote, dismiss and exercise disciplinary control over persons holding offices in the force, except the Inspector General of Police.
