The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has disclosed that 41, 863 officers and men across various ranks had been promoted since January 2019 when he assumed office.
Adamu disclosed this at the decoration ceremony of 10 newly promoted senior police officers at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, on Monday.

He said no organisation could advance beyond the competence and dedication of its strategic leaders, and neither can any organisational goals and plans be attained without a crop of highly committed personnel to drive the implementation process.
The IG said, “Since my assumption of office in January 2019, a total of 41,863 officers and men of the Force across different ranks have been promoted to their next ranks.
