Chairman National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa has approved the immediate promotion of 3,506 officers and men to their next ranks, thus breaking the jinx of long years of stagnation in the Agency.
In a statement by the director media and advocacy of the agecy Femi Babafemi, The promotion followed a report by the harmonisation committee set up by Gen. 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.
After due consideration of the recommendations by the committee, the NDLEA Chief 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.
While charging the promoted officers and men to see their elevation as a call to give their best in the task to rid the nation of illicit drug trafficking and abuse, Gen. Marwa said his commitment to push the Agency to the frontline in efficiency is becoming a reality due to the unquantifiable support of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Noting that To whom much is given, much is expected.
