Police recruitment: List of successful candidates remains valid – PSC insists


The Police Service Commission, PSC, has insisted that it would not cancel the list of successful candidates recently released for recruitment into the constables cadre of the Nigeria Police Force.

PSC disclosed this in a statement signed and issued on Tuesday by the Head of Press and Public Relations of PSC, Mr Ikechukwu Ani.

DAILY POST recalls that the Nigeria Police Force had alleged that the recruitment process was marred by corruption, stressing that the final list contained names of people who never applied.

Subsequently, there were reports that PSC succumbed to pressure from the NPF and cancelled the final list of successful candidates.

But Ani said on Tuesday that the statement did not emanate from PSC and “we urge the public to disregard the same”.

He insisted that the recruitment exercise was conducted in line with relevant guidelines and provisions of the law.

He said the commission had just concluded a routine maintenance of its portal containing the list of the successful candidates.

“The commission is in control of the situation and has since restored the recruitment portal with its original contents.

“Successful candidates are advised to ignore this deliberate antics of desperate groups bent on destroying the good work of the commission.

“The commission is committed to giving the nation a merit based and inclusive recruitment exercise.

“It will continue to ensure that federal character, gender sensitivity and merit are the bedrock of its recruitment process,” he said.
