Written by on November 22, 2023

The Police Service Commission, PSC, has backed the directive of the Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, asking policemen aged 60 and those who have spent 35 years in service to immediately tender letters of voluntary retirement. The PSC is also urging the affected police officers to obey the IG’s directive and proceed on retirement. A memo containing Egbetokun’s directive notes that the issue, which is a growing trend, has become worrisome. The statement adds that the trend is contrary to the provisions of the public service rule which provides that the mandatory retirement age for all grades in the service shall be 60 years or 35 years of pensionable service.
