Police Recruitment: No Date Fixed For Examination – PSC
Police Service Commission (PSC) said it has not announced any date for examination for applicants in the ongoing recruitment of constable cadre of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).
The PSC stated this when it disowned trending dates on social media for the examinations yesterday.
The PSC advised applicants to discountenance the dates currently circulating in the social media, noting that the commission will at the appropriate time not only officially announce the date for the examination but will notify applicants who were successful from the screening exercise that has just been concluded in the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
The spokesperson of the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, also said in a statement that the commission has directed the Police Cyber-crime Unit to investigate the source of the trending publication and quickly arrest the culprits for prosecution.
“The commission wishes to advise prospective applicants to disregard any communication or updates on the ongoing recruitment exercise that are not officially issued by the commission through its recognised media platforms.
“Applicants are advised to exercise patience and await the commission’s official statement on the date for the examination. The date will also be formally communicated to shortlisted applicants who were successful from the screening exercise,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, PSC chairman, Dr. Solomon Arase, has warned that the applicants should not be desperate so that they don’t fall prey to these marauding deviants who have refused to stay away from this recruitment exercise.
Arase said every candidate will enjoy equal opportunity in all the stages of the recruitment and that successful candidates will be good enough to make the nation proud especially now that the fight against insurgency and banditry is one battle that must be won in the interest of a united and prosperous Nigeria.
He said the commission was aware of the expectations of Nigerians and promised that this recruitment will meet and even surpass these expectations.
