It also endorsed the promotions of one Superintendent of Police to Chief Superintendent of Police; 12 Deputy Superintendents of Police to Superintendent of Police and one Assistant Superintendent of Police to Deputy Superintendent of Police.

The promoted Commissioners of Police appeared before the Commission in Plenary where they were subjected to questions on the change agenda of the Nigeria Police Force.

The new Commissioners of Police are; Posi E Ajunwa; Akinsanmi Francis Ayo; Kenneth Ebrimson and Akpoebi Agberebi Egbuson.

The Commission also rejected the recommendation for special promotion of one DSP and one Inspector and returned the recommendation for the appointment of a Deputy Commissioner of Police to Commissioner of Police on acting capacity for proper presentation. It also withheld the special promotion of nine other senior Police Officers for failure of the Police to provide convincing reasons for such promotions.

The Police Service Commission also approved the dismissal of six senior officers for various offences ranging from impersonation, forgery, insubordination, negligence and disobedience to lawful order. The dismissals were part of the decisions taken by the Commission on 55 disciplinary cases brought before it.
