Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu has stated that President Buhari is not responsible for promotions in the Police.
Reacting to rumours suggesting that President Buhari was pushing for the promotion of former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu who has been under probe over allegations of misuse of his office, Shehu in an interview on Channels Television said promotion in the nation’s police structure is determined by the Police Service Commission.
“President Buhari, or any Nigerian President for that matter, is not responsible for promotions in the Police. That is the business of the Police Service Commission, PSC.
“In the case of the gentleman in question, who is currently under investigation, common sense dictates that his eligibility will be determined by that outcome. The PSC could have given you the correct position on this if there was an effort to reach them.”
