Police to consider ​university-trained ​junior officers for promotion

The Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has directed that Police Inspectors, as well as other rank and file of the Nigeria Police, with university and other tertiary education certificates, be considered for promotion.

These officers are expected to be elevated to the Senior Officer Cadre.

The police said the move will boost the morale of the workforce.

In a circular issued on Monday by the Force Headquarters to this effect, police commands and formations across Nigeria were directed to compile and forward names of all serving inspectors as well as the rank and file with higher certificates for immediate consideration.

To join the Nigerian police as cadet inspectors, recruits are expected to have only a minimum of five credits including Mathematics and English in Senior Secondary School certificate examination.

Officers to the inspectorate cadre, called the rank and file, are expected to have at least have a First School Leaving Certificate, obtained at the completion of a Basic Primary Education.
