10,000 POLICE RECRUITMENT: Important Announcement For Those Who Applied For Nigerian Police Force

The Senate has demanded that the recruitment of
10,000 personnel into the Nigeria Police Force,
NPF, be suspended. it was gathered, cited irregularity in the
criteria set for the exercise.


Senate Committee on Police gave the suspension
order in a letter it wrote to the Police Service
Commission, PSC, last week and also forwarded to
President Muhammadu Buhari.
After initial hiccups, the recruitment, which finally
took off in August, was discovered to be lopsided.
Earlier, stakeholders had agreed that the
recruitment would be based on local government
areas, Daily Trust reports.
But the commission allegedly decided to base the
exercise on equal number per state, claiming
orders from above.
Protests letters were sent to the Senate, with
stakeholders demanding that the commission
restricts itself to the recruitment of cadet ASPs, its
statutory responsibility, while Force Headquarters
handles the enlistment of those on inspectorate
cadre and below.
Already, the presidency has reportedly directed the
PSC Chairman, Mike Okiro, to explain the flaw
pointed out by the red chamber.
Reacting, PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, said the
recruitment exercise had not been suspended.
Checks and recent events counter his position as
there had been no major news on the recruitment
since applicants wrote their aptitude tests late
August.
An applicant of Akwa Ibom origin, who wrote the
test, confirmed to DAILY POST that neither he nor
those he exchanged contact with have been
contacted.
“They told us they will invite us for the next stage,
but nothing yet. Last week, I called some guys I
met at the venue and they too said they have not
received any update,” he disclosed.
