Prominent Igbo Global Think Tank, Aka Ikenga, has commended Frank Mba on his recent elevation to the rank of Deputy Inspector General of Police, DIG, by the Police Service Commissioner (PSC).
This was contained in a press release by the Director of Communications of the group, Mr Collins l Ugwu.
Ugwu said the Executive Committee of Aka Ikenga led by it’s President, Agbalanze Chike Madueke, appreciated the integrity process that saw Mba attaining the height in public service on account of his exemplary professionalism and commitment to duty.
He said: “We are happy not just because it happened deservedly, but more so, for the critical implications of your assigned duty as the supervising DIG for South-East policing on security, law, and order.
“The grave challenges of insecurity to lives and businesses in your area of primary supervision, the South East, is one that will surely put you to test, to put them at rest, we clearly point out.
“As you settle down to the burden of this responsibility, we charge you to draw deeply from your extensive competences that mark your elevation, an urgent call for more work.
“We are confident that with your service resume and career traction, your knowledge of the environment will stand you firm to bring the invasive criminal mutations in the South-East, with vicious disruptions to their social and economic activities to a decisive end.
“We emphasise that at no time than now, does this region famed for commerce and industry, deserve secured peace to focus on the challenges of development and livelihoods in their homeland.
“We draw your attention too, to the dimensions of multiple checkpoints curiously peculiar to that region, and hope that a definite reset by extant service discipline, will leverage it for better security, than unedifying resentments for opportunism.
“We believe the tireless synergy between you and an Inspector General of Police with the zeal of a lion will restore safety in our homestead, and assure you our collaborative supports to make it happen with other pertinent stakeholders, because South-East should come back as the region of reference in security for low criminality index.”
It would be recalled that DIG Mba was assigned to supervise the South-East geopolitical zone after his promotion and subsequent decoration as DIG.
