A board meeting chaired by the Minister of Interior, Lt Gen. Abdulrahman  Dambazau, approved the regularization of the salaries on Tuesday in Abuja, according to a statement issued on Thursday in
Abuja by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Abubakar Magaji.

While the nomenclature for the HND holders will start with the rank of Senior Inspector, the degree holders are with the rank of Assistant Superintendent II.”
