The Nigeria Police Force' Public Relations Officer (FPPRO) Moshood Jimoh has been appointed as acting Deputy Commissioner (DCP) in charge of the department.
His appointment in acting capacity, which was recommended by the Inspector-General (IGP) Ibrahim Idris and approved by the Police Service Commission (PSC) was done to fill the vacancy that has existed in the department.
The office of the FPPRO, it was gathered, was supposed to be occupied by an officer in the rank of a Deputy Commissioner of Police.
Since the promotion of Jimoh's predecessor, Don Awunah to Commissioner of Police and subsequent redeployment, the police public relations department has not been at par with those of other security agencies, who had higher ranking officers as head.
To bridge the gap, the police high command yesterday approved Jimoh's promotion in acting capacity.
Commending the IGP for the elevation, a senior officer said: "Check the ranks of those heading the public relations departments of all government security agencies in the country and you will see that they are officers whose ranks are equivalent to Commissioners or Deputy Commissioners.
"The Nigerian Army has a Brigadier General as Director Public Relations; for the navy, it's a Commodore and Air Force public relations department is headed by  an Air Vice Marshal (two-star General). 
"Then, the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has a Deputy Comptroller as head of the unit and same with the Nigerian Immigration and Prison Services, while the Federal Road Safety Commissioner's head of public relations is a Corps Commander. I see nothing wrong with Jimoh's elevation."
