NDLEA PROMOTES 3,506 OFFICERS AFTER YEARS OF STAGNATION
National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has approved the promotion of 3,506 officers, after several years of stagnation on a rank. They will now move to their next senior rank with the approval by Chairman/Chief Executive of the agency, Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa (rtd) yesterday.
The spokesman of the agency, Femi Babafemi, said the approval followed a report by the harmonisation committee set up by Marwa soon after assuming leadership of the agency in January to address the issues of low morale and stagnation in the career path of personnel.
He said after due consideration of the recommendations by the committee, the NDLEA chief executive approved the immediate promotion of 2,910 officers between the rank of Narcotic Assistant I and Superintendent of Narcotics while 596 others between Chief Superintendent of Narcotics and Assistant Commander-General of Narcotics were recommended to the board of the agency for elevation to their next ranks, a recommendation that was approved by the board on June 16, 2021.
