The ceremony took place at NPF Headquarters in Abuja on June 24, 2014, Tuesday. 

The IGP described the newly-decorated officers as men who had worked very hard and deserved to be promoted.

He stressed that promotion was one area of incentive to encourage officers and men to do more in service to their fatherland, especially in fighting terrorism and all forms of crimes and criminality.

“We expect you to provide leadership in all aspects of your action.

“We shall not hesitate to do otherwise (demote you) when you abandon those responsibilities that you are supposed to discharge and your behaviour became negative,” the police boss said.

The special attention was to the spokesperson of the police, Frank Mba, who was decorated as Assistant Commissioner of Police.

Abubakar commended Mba, noting that though the spokesman was not a journalist, but he (Mba) discharge his duty professionally as one and projected the police positively.

“The force public relations officer came in almost three years ago and demonstrated that he could perfect professionalism.

“Though not a journalist, he has changed the face of police image for better today. It is so glaring; I believe that many people will be wondering, his promotion came as a way of his commitment, dedication and act of loyalty to the force and the country.

“He is a young man who has all it takes to do his best for the country, the force, his leaders and friends.

“I am particularly happy that today, he is wearing a new rank,” he said.

Mba enlisted into the police in 1992 as a Cadet Inspector. He was promoted to ASP in 1999, DSP in 2006 and CSP in 2012.

AIG Grace Chita Okudo, CP Elias Okafor Wayemeru, CP Henry Adebayo Fadairo and ACP Yusuf Chiromawa Usman were also among senior officers decorated at the ceremony on Tuesday. 

It would be recalled that the Police High Command promoted 210 Senior Police Officers on June 10, 2014.
