The Cross River State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Kola Sodipo, on Thursday tasked 273 newly promoted officers and men of the command to justify their promotion by working harder to reduce crime rates.

Sodipo spoke at the command’s headquarters in Calabar shortly before decorating the newly promoted policemen.

He said one of the cardinal programs of the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, was to ensure that officers and men who worked hard were promoted.

“Your promotion or elevation is higher responsibility and more sacrifice. To whom much is given, much is expected. You must show Nigerians that you deserve this promotion. The promotion would make your work harder.

“Now that you have been promoted to a higher rank, you must prove to the public that you deserve it by justifying your promotion through hard work and reduction of crime rate,” he said.

A breakdown of the newly promoted officers showed that two superintendents of police were promoted to the rank of chief superintendent of police, three deputy superintendents of police to SP while six assistant superintendents of police got elevated to DSP.

Others were 56 Inspectors to ASP, one inspector to principal inspector, 12 inspectors to senior inspectors, 65 sergeants to inspectors, 18 corporals to sergeants and110 constables to corporals.

Responding on behalf of the newly promoted officers, the Commander of Mobile Police unit, CSP Abdullahi Ibrahim, pledged to do their best to justify their promotion.

He said, “This promotion entails additional responsibilities and challenges and we will not let them down. We are ready to face all the challenges that will confront us.”

Ibrahim also said police officials were already receiving orientation to maintain cordiality with members of the public as their salaries come from tax payers made up mainly of civilians.
