The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has said that more women would be made Commissioners in the Nigeria Police Force.
He said this while addressing the 2019 Nigerian Police Force Women’s Conference, which took place in Abuja on Wednesday.
Mr. Adamu said that five female officers were already listed for elevation to the rank of Commissioner as part of deliberate efforts to place more women in managerial positions.
He praised the female officers for demonstrating intelligence and capability, and the ability to compete favourably with their male counterparts.
According to him, the force had over time, effected policies to respect gender sensitivity, which is emphasized by the establishment of the office of the Force Gender Advisor as well as the Gender Unit of the Force Intelligence Bureau.
He said,” We have produced several women police officers who have and are still holding strategic positions as Commissioners of Police, Assistant Inspector-General of Police and Deputy Inspector-General of Police. Very soon, more women police officers would be appointed into managerial positions and five would be elevated to the rank of CP.”
