Police Finally Opens Up On Abandoning Recruitment Of New Officers

The Police Service Commission has assured Nigerians that the ongoing recruitment of 10,000 police constables will be concluded.

It explained that the exercise would be transparent and driven by merit.

The commission spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, in a statement in Abuja on Sunday, said the management would meet this week to take a decision on the recruitment, which “is currently at its final stage.”

The commission had announced the suspension of the recruitment on Friday following alleged moves by the Nigeria Police Force to take over the exercise.

Our correspondent had reported that the workers of the commission threatened to embark on a seven-day warning strike on Monday (today).

The PSC said, “The commission wishes to assure applicants that the exercise will be concluded soon and the names of successful candidates released.

“Dates for medical screening for successful candidates from the aptitude test held on August 3, 2019, will be announced after the meeting.

“The commission will continue to carry the Nigeria Police Force and other stakeholders in the police sector along in this very important presidential assignment and will ensure that the exercise remains merit-driven, transparent and according to the laws, rules and regulations guiding the public service.”
