The Police Service Commission (PSC) has recently given its approval for the deployment of eight commissioners of police to various state commands across the country. The announcement was made by Ikechukwu Ani, the spokesperson for the PSC, in a statement released on Friday.
The states that will be welcoming the new commissioners of police include Borno, Kwara, Oyo, Kebbi, Ebonyi, Ogun, Anambra, and Imo. The move comes as part of the PSC’s efforts to enhance security and improve policing in different regions of the country.
One noteworthy aspect of the deployment is the commendation received by Kayode Egbetokun, the acting inspector-general of police (IGP), for being gender-sensitive in his recommendation for the roles. This recognition highlights the importance of diversity and inclusivity within law enforcement leadership.
In addition to praising the acting IGP, Solomon Arase, the PSC chairman, urged him to consider the needs of disadvantaged geo-political zones while forwarding future proposals for commissioner appointments. This move underscores the commission’s commitment to equitable distribution of leadership positions and resources across the nation.
Without further ado, here is the list of the newly deployed commissioners of police along with their respective states:
- Godwin Aghaulor — Borno
- Adelesi E. Oluwarotimi — Kwara
- Adebola Ayinde Hamzat — Oyo
- Augustina Ogbodo — Ebonyi
- Samuel Titus Musa — Kebbi
- Aderemi Adeoye — Anambra
- Stephen Olarewaju — Imo
- Alamatu Abiodun — Ogun
Each of the appointed commissioners brings their expertise and experience to the respective states, aiming to strengthen law and order and ensure the safety of residents.
The Police Service Commission’s decision to strategically deploy these new commissioners is a step towards fortifying the country’s security apparatus and fostering better coordination between law enforcement agencies and local communities.
