President Muhammadu Buhari has on Thursday in Abuja decorated two of the newly promoted officers of the Nigerian Police Force deployed to his office with their new ranks.
This is just as the President charged public officers entrusted with certain responsibilities to live up to their duties and justify the confidence reposed in them.
According to a statement by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Abdulkarim Dauda and Kayode Sikiru Akande, were both promoted from the position of Assistant Commissioner of Police to Deputy Commissioner of Police.
The duo will serve as the Chief Personal Security Officer to the President and the Officer in Charge of Presidential Movement respectively.
“Buhari stressed that Nigeria needed their dedication and unwavering commitment for it to achieve greatness and assume its rightful position, cautioning them not to abuse their positions,” the statement added.
President Buhari congratulated the officers and urged them to justify their new ranks by increasing their commitment to the service of the nation.
He also commended them for their hard work and achievements which brought about their promotion.
