The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, who doubles as a retired Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, had a productive meeting with the acting Inspector General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun.
The visit marked the first time Egbetokun visited the Commission since assuming office.
During the one-hour discussion, they addressed various critical issues aimed at advancing the security sub-sector of the nation.
To foster cooperation and coordination between the two federal government agencies, the PSC Chairman and the visiting acting IGP agreed to establish Joint Committees that would address potential areas of conflict in their operations.
In addition, they reached a consensus on the formation of a Recruitment Board that would involve key stakeholders in future recruitment exercises.
This move aimed to ensure transparency and inclusivity in the recruitment process.
Both the Commission and the Police leadership vowed to prioritize the welfare of Police Officers going forward.
They recognized the importance of promptly handling disciplinary matters, ensuring that appropriate actions are taken against wrongdoers while allowing those not at fault to progress in their careers unimpeded.
In the spirit of fairness and competence, the two leaders also committed to ensuring that Police Promotions are based on merit, seniority, and the availability of vacancies.
Arase emphasized the Commission’s continuous collaboration with the acting Inspector General of Police to ensure efficiency and effectiveness within the Nigeria Police Force. By working together, they aimed to strengthen the security sector and contribute to the nation’s overall progress.
