The Police Service commission PSC has said all police officers due for retirement must proceed, ahead of the February 25 presidential election.
The PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, in a statement on Tuesday, said the commission will not extend the tenures of the retiring senior police officers.
According to him, all existing laws, the Police Act, PSC Act and the constitution of Nigeria constrain the Commission from elongating the tenure of retiring senior police officers.
Ani, following a management meeting on Monday, stated the ongoing campaign for the extension of the tenures of some Deputy Inspectors General (DIGs), Assistant Inspectors General (AIGs), Commissioners (CPs), and other senior police officers is unnecessary.
He described it as an affront to all existing laws in the country guiding entry and exit in the public service.
