Speaking at the occasion, the IGP stated that the Nigeria Police Force was the lead security agency that is strategic to the internal security of the nation and that the newly promoted officers represented a crop of officers with invaluable records and experiences to help tackle emerging security challenges
Adamu said: “I am convinced that all of you, newly promoted officers fit perfectly into my human capacity development vision. Let me, however, remind you that to whom much is given, much more shall be expected.
“The police leadership demands of you, a higher sense of commitment to duty, and the nation expects of you an exceptional display of loyalty, courage and professional competence which are needed to move the Nigeria Police and our beloved country into the next level in relation to internal security.
“I trust that you shall not fail the Nigeria Police Force, neither will you fail the nation in the critical responsibilities that your new rank shall impose on you.
