His words, “Promotion is a motivational factor for a job well- done. Let me remind you that it is additional responsibilities from the level they are and for then to add value to the job. The IG takes promotion very seriously and would not expect nothing less from you”.
Speaking further, Ali said it is expected of individual police officers, inspite rank to maintain and abide by the rule of law, display courage and add value to whatever they do.
“Your behaviour should be of additional core value and display professionalism, you must obey the principle of professional policing” he further enjoined.
The newly promoted officers include ACP Sola Okediji, who until the promotion was the Assistant Commissioner of Police Area “M” , Lagos, transfered to Abuja and ACP Titilayo Kayode, now Deputy Commissioner of Police, (DCP) operations, Lagos command.
While fielding questions from newsmen, AIG disclosed that the force has witnessed mass promotion recently, adding that over 500 cops were promoted in Ogun State, including the rank and file, before he left for Zone II.
