A civil society organisation, Office of the Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (OCFRN) has commended Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, for suspending the ongoing promotion exercise in the Nigerian Police Force (NPF).
OCFRN’s convener, Mr Pelumi Olajengbesi, who briefed newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, said that the action had shown that the Federal Government was responsive and responsible.
Olajengbesi, under the auspices of United Global Resolve for Peace (UGRFP), had recently called on Osinbajo to intervene in alleged one-sided promotion exercise in the Police.
He said the group petitioned the Acting President, Inspector-General of Police and Police Service Commission (PSC) over allegations of ethnicity, nepotism and favouritism in the promotion exercise.
The legal practitioner, who is also the executive secretary of UGRFP, had alleged that no fewer than 72 aggrieved policemen lodged complaints with the group over denial of their promotions. (NAN)
