The Police Service Commission has reinstated 10 dismissed police officers, converted the dismissal of two others to retirement, and rejected the appeals of six others for lack of merit, after it considered appeals and petitions of 18 dismissed police officers.
The PSC took the decision at its 17th Plenary which ended in Abuja on Friday, November 11, 2022 and presided over by its Acting Chairman, Justice Clara Ogunbiyi.
The Commission also approved the conversion of 301 ICT professionals to General Duty.
It had earlier approved the special promotion of CSP Daniel Amah to the next rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police for his exemplary conduct in rejecting a bribe of $200,000,00 in the course of his duty as the Divisional Police Officer in Bompai Kano State.
Amah was also presented with Honesty and Integrity Service Award and a cash gift of N1million.
The plenary also approved the promotion of 48 staff of the Commission.
In a statement acquired by our correspondent, Ogunbiyi said the PSC would continue to ensure that appeals and petitions by aggrieved or dismissed police officers were treated with dispatch.
She also noted that promotions of staff of the commission will remain prompt and regular but called for reciprocity from the staff by improved commitment in the discharge of their duties, adding that there was so much work to be done in the commission.
