By Hillary Asemota

The Police Service Commission has said it’s attention has been drawn to a press statement by  the All Progressive Congress  Presidential Campaign Council (APCPCC) on the appointment of one of its Commissioners Ms Najatu Mohammed, representing the North-west in the Commission as one of the Coordinators for the monitoring of Police conduct in the February 25th Presidential election which the Council accused  of partisanship.

The Statement signed by Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN, Director of Public Affairs and Chief Spokes person Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, rejected the appointment of Commissioner Najatu Mohammed  as Coordinator for the exercise.

The Council Spokesperson stated in the statement that the appointment is not only “callous, it is insensitive, openly confrontational and consequently unacceptable by the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.”

The Commission wishes to state with all sense of responsibility that it’s Commissioners representing different geopolitical zones have always supervised assignments of the Commission in the geopolitical zones they represent, adding that it was the same with the present national assignment.

The Commission has however decided to mandate Assistant Inspector General (AIG) rtd of Police Mr. Bawa Lawal rtd who is from the same geopolitical Zone with Commissioner Najatu to take over the coordination of the monitoring of Police Conduct in the zone.

Spokesperson for the Commission, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani, in a statement said: “The Commission will always be sensitive to the wishes of Nigerians and  will continue to contribute it’s quota to the sustenance of the nation’s democracy.

“It wishes to restate it’s commitment to a free and fair 2023 elections where the Police as the lead agency in internal security which includes election policing will discharge it’s duties according to the dictates of the law.”
