In a statement released on Wednesday (23rd March, 2016) by Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of the Police Service Commission (PSC) in Abuja, the commission has warned that there would be no short-cut into the Nigeria Police Force in the recruitment of 10,000 personnel.

The spokesperson told journalists in Abuja today that Mike Okiro, Chairman of the commission, gave the warning while unveiling a portal for the exercise in Abuja.

The statement said that the portal would be opened to the public on April 1, 2016 to herald the commencement of the exercise.

“The process leading to the recruitment of 10,000 Policemen as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari at the National Security Summit in Abuja last year, has commenced,” the statement said, adding that the unveiling of the portal was in actualisation of the presidential directive on the recruitment of the 10,000 Policemen.

The statement also noted that the exercise was remarkable because there had not been recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force for more than five years, adding that thousands of policemen who died in the course of service, dismissed or retired, had not been replaced since the last five years.

The statement stressed that the recruitment would strengthen and re-energise the force to tackle more security challenges facing the country, adding that the exercise could not begin last year because the funding was not captured in the 2015 budget.

The statement urged interested applicants to access the portal through the commission’s website: www.psc.gov.ng or that of the Nigeria Police Force:www.npf.gov.ng.

It said that no fee would be charged for the processing of the forms which would be filled on-line. “We are not charging money. It is free, absolutely free,” it said.
