“Your promotion was as a result of your individual hard work, dedication to duty, hence the need to appreciate your efforts. The command would continue to honour and reciprocate its deserving officers and punish the erring ones,” the CP stated.
Mani also challenged officers in the command to put in more efforts in the discharge of their responsibilities.
According to an earlier report by NAIJ.com, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris says the force loses 9,028 officers to death, dismissal and retirement annually. Idris made the disclosure at the monthly meeting with commissioners of police on Wednesday, February 21, in Abuja.
The IGP said that the development had seriously affected the manpower of the force. He noted that the 308, 000 police workforce was grossly inadequate for the effective policing of the more than 180 million people in the country, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
