The promotion exercise dubbed “New Year Gift” for members of the Police rank and file, takes effect from 1st January, 2013.
In a release by the Force spokesperson, Frank Mba, all the beneficiaries had earlier attended and passed a special promotion course organized for them at the four premier Police Colleges located at Lagos, Orji-River, Kaduna and Maiduguri.
