Nigerian Police Force Calls For Review Of Recruitment List Over Corrupt Allegations

NPF calls for review of recruitment list over corruption

The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has raised alarm over irregularities and corruption in the recently released list of successful candidates for the 2022/23 Police Constables Recruitment Exercise.

In a statement, the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the list released by the Police Service Commission (PSC) contained names of individuals who did not apply or participate in the recruitment exercise, failed the Computer Based Test (CBT) or physical screening exercise, and those medically unfit.

The NPF also alleged financial dealings and corrupt practices leading to the outcome, and called for a transparent and credible review of the process.

The Inspector General of Police had written a letter of objection to the list, citing the discoveries, and the Police have dissociated themselves from the published list.

The NPF reiterated its commitment to ensuring a thorough review of the process to recruit qualified, competent, trainable, and productive hands into the Nigeria Police Force, in line with President Bola Tinubu’s led administration’s vision on police reform.

The development comes after the PSC released the list of 10,000 successful applicants for constable and specialist cadre roles in the NPF, with 9,000 approved for general duty and 1,000 for specialist cadre roles.
