Impressed with the new changes at the Police Service Commission (PSC), the pioneer Chairman of the PSC, Chief Simeon Okeke, declared that the current Chairman and retired Inspector General of Police, Dr. Solomon Arase, has made a huge success of his pioneering work in the Commission.
He was glad with the transformational changes when he visited the Corporate Headquarters of the Commission in Jabi, Abuja on Wednesday August 16th, 2023.
This was contained in a statement by the Head, Press and Public Relations of PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, and made available to Security Watch Africa (SWA).
It reads “Chief Okeke who was fascinated with the total turn around of the Commission, pleaded with the Federal Government to kindly assist the new Chairman offset mounting debts currently facing the Commission in the form of unpaid allowances due the staff in the course of their official duties for several years before his assumption of duty.
“He noted that this little assistance from Government will motivate the staff to greater commitment to duty and ensure that Dr. Arase succeeds in his missionary duty in the Commission.
“Chief Okeke who paid an unscheduled courtesy visit on Dr. Arase was speaking on the sidelines of his visit where he said he was impressed with what he saw of the Commission at its Corporate Headquarters;
“It is more of a pioneering work with what Arase is making of the Commission, doing it with zeal and persuasion to succeed and overcome which I know of him as a Police Officer. He has all the ingredients to overcome and his entry into this Office must have been a big obstacle but he has conquered” he noted.
Chief Okeke said Arase has made a success of his stewardship in the Commission, stressing that he was happy to see the staff in their offices and not as tenants.
“He called on the Staff and new Members when they are appointed, to join hands with the Chairman to regain the pride of the Commission,” the statement said.
