President Muhammadu Buhari has waded into the tussle between the Nigeria Police Force and the Police Service Commission, PSC, saying the commission mandates include the task of appointment and promotion in the force.
The president stated this when he received the 2018 Annual Report of the PSC, at the State House, Abuja today.
He added that the PSC mandate also included the disciplinary control of officers of the Nigerian Police Force, except the Inspector-General of Police.
He therefore, charged members of the PSC to redouble their efforts in ensuring that the Nigeria Police Force delivers on its responsibilities.
He noted that the commission’s assignment was enormous and called for sacrifice and commitment especially now that almost every country is faced with severe internal security challenges and Nigeria is no exception.
The President praised the Commission for new ideas introduced into the workings of the Force.
