The new promotions, according to the Assistant Director of Press and Public Relations, Ferdinand Ekpe, take immediate effect.
Ekpe re-affirmed the commission's decision that promotions from the ranks of ACPs to AIGs would only be done after interview sessions with the affected officers.
He revealed that the commission approved the new elevation after its statutory sixth plenary which held last week within which aggrieved police officers were expected to forward complaints against punishment meted to them 30 days from the receipt of the decisions.
Former Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Commission’s Chairman, Sir Mike Okiro, enjoined the promoted officers to consider the promotion as an opportunity to serve the country.
He implored them to use their wealth of experience in uplifting the Nigeria Police Force.
