“You are promoted as a result of your annual performance evaluation reports and your efforts in supporting the command in fight against banditry in the state.

“You now have new status. You have been found worthy in both character and performance as well as operationally sound to be promoted to the ranks of Superintendents of Police.

“We are now expecting maximum performance from you, you are now at a managerial level because very soon you would be DPOs, managing Divisions of Police,’’ he said.
