President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has tasked men and officers of the Nigerian Police Force to always exhibit attributes of fairness and equity in the discharge of their duties to the nation.
Senator Mark said while decorating his Aide-de Camp, ADC Abel Miri to the rank of Chief Superintendent of Police, (CSP) in his office yesterday that Police have major roles to play in ensuring a safer environment and stable economy.
He stressed that promotion should be seen as an added responsibility in its entirety, “I am appealing to other Police officers across the length and breadth of our country as the nearest institution to the people, they have major roles to play in ensuring equity and fairness in our society.
“It takes a man with character and good conscience to recognise hard work and recommend another for promotion. Promotion is a call for higher responsibility and it is a way of doing more and not doing less,” Senator Mark urged.
Senator Mark commended the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Abubakar for his commitment and dedication to duty even as he counselled him to do more in ensuring peace and security of the nation.
He noted that the Police Force have witnessed tremendous improvement since his emergence as the IGP adding that despite the limited numbers of the men in the profession, the officers can still make greater impact by minimising the socio-vices trend in our society.
