The newly redeployed Permanent Secretary to the Police Service Commission (PSC), Alhaji Abubakar Ismaila, has assumed office.
A statement by the Spokesman of the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, noted that the new permanent secretary has promised not to only change the narrative in the Public Service but to run an all-inclusive administration where every staff counts.
Speaking at the hand-over ceremony, the permanent secretary said that he will work to change the narrative that the public service is an institution where anything happens, stressing that he will always insist that things are done within the boundaries of the extant laws.
Ismaila noted that he is aware of the enormity of the challenges in the Commission, hence, promised to do his best to take it to the next level.
He called for all hands to be on deck, stressing that: “We have to come together as a team to discharge this onerous assignment.”
He also called for support and cooperation from the Staff of the Commission promising to carry every staff along and make every staff count.
“My plan is that every one that matter is carried along, but I need your maximum support,” he stressed.
Earlier, the Director, Department of Police Discipline, Emmanuel Ibe, who held brief in the Commission had narrated the state of affairs in the Commission and briefed the new Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the Commission on the judgment of the Court of Appeal that returned the Commission’s constitutional mandate to appoint persons into offices in the Nigeria Police Force.
Mr. Ibe pledged the support and cooperation of the Staff and prayed for the success of the new Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the Commission in his new but challenging office.
