The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has promoted 21,039 junior police officers who were last promoted on or before 2017.

In a breakdown of the beneficiaries, 20,572 Sergeants were promoted to the next rank of Inspector, while 324 Corporals were moved to Sergeants.

Also 143 Constables were promoted the rank of Corporal.

According to police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the mass promotion is part of the ongoing efforts aimed at improving welfare.

It is also meant to boost the morale of personnel, with a view to repositioning the Force for greater efficiency.

“The IGP further noted that the promotion of the officers is part of the manpower development drive of his administration to ensure that deserving personnel are promoted accordingly, to encourage hard work, and further embed the culture of merit, excellence, and dedication to duties.

“The IGP equally assured senior police officers that the Force high command is liaising with the Police Service Commission on the release of their promotion as soon as possible.

“The Inspector-General of Police, while commending the newly promoted officers for their resilience and invaluable commitment to duties, charged them to see their promotion as a call for renewed zeal, vigour, patriotism to duty, and further re-dedication to professional policing standards.

“The IGP equally restated the commitment of his administration to entrenching longstanding reforms in the Nigeria Police Force”.

From Molly Kilete, Abuja

The Nigerian Air Force has postponed its 58th Anniversary celebration scheduled to hold in Kano State from May 19-21. It has fixed May 23 as the new date for the ceremony.
NAF Director of public relations and information Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, made this known in a statement. Although no reason was given for ...ponement of the anniversary celebrations, it was gathered that the explosion that rocked Kano in the early hours of Tuesday which left about nine people dead and several others injured may not be unconnected to postponement.
President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to be the Special Guest of Honour.

The statement reads; “The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Day 2022 Celebration earlier scheduled to take place from 19-21 May 2022 at NAF Base, Kano has now been rescheduled to take place from 21- 23 May 2022 at the same venue. This was due to unforseen circumstances. The NAF wishes to apologise to all its invited guests for the inconveniences the new shift in date may have caused them”.

Nigeria has failed, needs new system to survive – Archbishop Okubadejo

From Oluseye Ojo, Ibadan

The Archbishop of Diocese of Ibadan-North, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev’d Segun Okubadejo, said the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates of the British colonies that became Nigeria in 1914 has failed.

He warned that if Nigeria would continue to exist, a new system is needed because the North and the South are not the same people that should be governed by the same constitution.

Okubadejo made the disclosure at a press conference he addressed in Ibadan on Tuesday to kickstart a weeklong activities to mark his retirement from active service and 70th birthday after 50 years as a full-time cleric in the Anglican denomination.

Apparently referring to the murder of a  female student of Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto State, Deborah Samuel, who was a Christian, by religious extremists over alleged blasphemy against Islam, he said: “We need a new system for Nigeria, since the British contraption or amalgamation has failed. What is obtainable in the North is different from what is obtainable in the South. We are different people. We are not the same people.

“We need a new system that will guarantee a free federal structure. I am suggesting that we need a kind of strong zonal provinces at we can call confederation. I am suggesting that we should have six provinces and each province should have its constitution. I know, they (the powers that be) will not listen. But we shall continue to tell them the right thing.”

Okubadejo, who listed his achievements in the diocese within the past 24 years, however, condemned in strong terms the killing of Deborah Samuel, adding that the charges brought to court against the two suspects arrested by police in connection with her death were watery because they bordered on conspiracy and public disturbance, instead of conspiracy and murder charges. He added that “It is clear that Nigeria is at war and it is North against the South. Can you imagine that 34 lawyers went to court to defend the two suspects?”

Commenting on the 2023 general elections, Okubadejo stated that he did not know if the elections would go or not, saying if the election would hold, the South must put its act together and speak with one voice.

“We have so many presidential aspirants in the South that want to become president in 2023. This is an indication that they are just trying to fulfil their personal ambitions, and not to change the country positively. So, I urge all the presidential aspirants in the South to come together and chose a credible one among them. If they don’t know or they know it already, the coming out of many presidents from the South, is a strategy to split the votes from the South. So, I suggest to them to go for a credible person aming them, irrespective of political parties.”
