Apart from Smith (South west),the nomination of Justice Clara Bata Ogunbiyi (rtd) (North East) (full time commissioner); Lawal Bawa (AIG) (rtd) (North West) (full time commissioner) and Muhammad H. Najatu (North West) member were also approved.

Others also confirmed included Braimoh Adogame Austin (South South) member, Barrister Rommy Mom (North Central) member and Dr. Nkemka Oshimiri Jombo-Ofo (South East) member.

Before the confirmation, Senator James Manager (Delta south) said that one of the full time commissioners should have been appointed from either South South or South East geo-political zones for balance.

Manager noted that a situation where the North West, North East and South West geo-political zones got full member slots without any full time commissioner from the South South and South East was not particularly tidy.

Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, commended the quality of persons nominated for the commission.

Saraki reminded the appointees that Nigerians were expecting a lot from them.

He noted that due to the huge expectations from Nigerians, the Senate fast tracked the process of screening and confirmation of their appointments.

The appointees, he said, should carry out necessary reforms in the Police Force especially reward for excellent service delivery by officers and men of the Force.

Saraki also asked them to work to halt the high number of policemen who die in their line of duty.
