Ani said the decision was taken at the 17th Plenary Meeting of the commission, presided by its acting Chairman, Justice Clara Ogunbiyi.
He said the commission had also approved the conversion of 301 ICT professionals to General Duty.
The PSC spokesman said the commission had earlier approved special promotion of Mr. Daniel Amah, a Chief Superintendent of Police to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police.
He said Amah’s special promotion followed his exemplary conduct in rejecting a bribe of 200,000 US Dollars in the course of his duty as the Divisional Police Officer in Bompai, Kano.
Ani said Amah was also presented with Honesty and Integrity Service Award with a cash gift of N1 million.
He said the meeting also approved the promotion of 48 staff members of the commission.
Ani said that the commission had pledged to ensure that appeals and petitions by aggrieved police officers were treated with dispatch.
This, he added, was to ensure that no police officer was unjustly punished.
