He assured them that henceforth disciplinary matters will be handled with dispatch so that officers who are found wanting will serve their punishments while those who are exonerated are cleared to continue with their career progression without hinderance.

The Commission Chairman thanked Members of the Commission for their commitment and dedication to the assignment at hand and assured them of carrying everyone along in the tasking assignment of rebuilding both the Commission and the Nigeria Police Force.
