Police suspends recruitment exercise


The Police Service Commission has put on hold the ongoing recruitment process into the constable cadre of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) to enable it finalise the remaining stages of the exercise.

Head, Press and Public Relations of PSC, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, who disclosed this in a statement issued on yesterday in Abuja, appealed to the affected applicants to be patient and await further directives from the Commission.

He urged those who participated in the recruitment process up to the aptitude test level to ignore any list or information on the exercise emanating from outside the Commission.


According to him, it is the constitutional responsibility of the Commission to recruit Nigerians into the NPF whether as constables, cadet inspectors or cadet assistant superintendent of police.

He said the Commission would not abdicate the all-important mandate, adding that, “it will resist any attempt to ambush the ongoing recruitment exercise or dilute its content.”

Ani said that any attempt to ambush the process would be an affront to the Commission and waste of national resources.
