Police receive accelerated promotion after 20 years

An Akwa Ibom state police officer, Lazarus Udom, who had just been promoted to the rank of Deputy Commissioner of the police (DCP) said that he suffered for 20 years before getting the promotion. Udom, who earned an accelerated promotion from chief superintendent of police to DCP, was honored with his new rank at the police headquarters in Uyo on Monday. He said that he served his classmates and junior officers during the period of their tribulations. Mr. Udom, who hails from Akwa Ibom state, attributed his tribulations to bureaucratic bottlenecks. He said he was grateful to God, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the state police commissioner for the role they played in his promotion. “It was a terrible experience in my life because during the entire period of almost 20 years without promotion, I served my classmates and the juniors. As a human being, I was frustrated, because if I say I wasn’t frustrated, I would be lying. “However, I want to thank God for his benevolence. I also thank the IGP and the police commissioner. I feel elated today. “I will rededicate myself to serving this nation and being loyal to the IGP and to our country. I will do my best to carry out my primary responsibility, which is to fight crime,” the newly decorated officer said. Police Commissioner in the state, Andrew Amiengheme, in his remarks, thanked God for the officer. Amiengheme said the promotion would encourage others who were in similar situations within the force. He said the command had instituted a reward mechanism for officers who had distinguished themselves. “This promotion will encourage other officers with similar situations. My advice to them is to be patient and commit more. “As a command, we will make sure that the officers who need to be promoted are promoted. We have already started different reward mechanisms for the hard working officers in the state,” he said.
