PSC suspends ongoing Police recruitment


…Says candidates to await further directives

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has said that the on-going recruitment into the Constable cadre of the Nigeria Police Force has been put on hold in order to finalize the remaining stage of the exercise.

The Commission in a statement signed by its Head, Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani in Abuja on Friday advised the applicants to exercise some patience as it finalized the remaining stage of the recruitment exercise.

The statement further advised all the candidates who participated in the recruitment exercise up to the aptitude test, to ignore any list or information on the exercise emanating from outside the Commission.

“It is the constitutional responsibility of the Commission to recruit Nigerians into the Police Force whether as Constables, Cadet Inspectors or Cadet ASPs and the Commission is not ready to abdicate this very important mandate.

“The Commission will resist any attempt to ambush the on-going recruitment exercise or dilute its content. It notes that such attempt will be an affront on the Constitution and a waste of national resources.

“Meanwhile the Commission wishes to put the on-going exercise on hold in order to finalize the remaining stage of the exercise. Candidates are to wait for further directives from the Commission”, the statement read.
