Nigeria Police Force rejects the recruitment list by the PSC, calls for a thorough review

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has rejected the recruitment list provided by the Police Service Commission (PSC)
and called for a thorough review.

The Nigeria Police Force raised this concerns about suspected irregularities and corruption that have reportedly tarnished the list of successful candidates in the current 2022/23 police constables recruitment.

After numerous complaints from candidates and stakeholders regarding the sudden absence of names of individuals who were reviewed and advanced to the final stage, this issue arose.

In a press release issued on Saturday, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, mentioned that upon careful examination of the published list, various irregularities were detected.

He said, “Several names of persons purported to be names of successful candidates are those who did not even apply and therefore did not take part in the recruitment exercise.

“Most worrisome is the allegation of financial dealings and corrupt practices leading to the outcome where unqualified and untrainable individuals have been shortlisted.

“The reaction of the IGP was without prejudice to the power of the commission to recruit for the police as ruled by the Supreme court but this power does not include the power to recruit unqualified and untrained individuals for the police.

“Noting that it is the police that bears the brunt of recruitment of unqualified individuals and not the PSC. The same people who recruited anyhow for the police today will turn round to accuse the police tomorrow of inefficiency when their recruits start messing up.”
