The Police Service Commission (PSC) said it has shortlisted 338,227 applicants out of the 911,438 that applied for recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force.
The Chairman of the Commission, Mr Mike Okiro, disclosed this at a news conference in Abuja. He also revealed that the screening of successful applicants would begin on June 6 in the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
A breakdown of the shortlisted candidates:
– 44,661 were shortlisted for cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) out of 262,426 applicants that applied,
– 87,736 for cadet Inspector out of 211,832 that applied and
– 205,830 for Police Constables out of 437,144 that applied.
The initial shortlisting of applicants was done electronically and invitation letters have been sent to successful applicants through SMS and to their personal email addresses.
The Chairman of the Commission warned applicants against fake letters from criminal elements, stressing that the invitation states the date for each person’s screening and venue of the screening.
“Applicants will be grouped according to their local government areas and a date fixed for their screening.”
He said that this was to avoid overcrowding the venue and also for meticulous exercise. He warned that no applicant would be admitted into any venue or appear on any date other than those allocated to him or her.
Okiro added that after the screening, successful candidates would be invited to a zonal screening to be held in the 12 police zonal headquarters in the country. He said the national interview would be held in Abuja, where those who were successful at the zonal screening would be interviewed.
He noted that the Commission had been transparent since the filling and submission of forms started, saying
I want to re-emphasis that the Commission will be guided by the rules and will be fair, transparent and ensure that the process is merit-driven. As a commission, we have collectively and individually swore to make this project a huge success. “The Nigeria Police needs the best, especially now that the nation is engaged in several battles.
