The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, has reaffirmed that the recruitment process of the Nigeria Police Force is strictly merit-based, debunking reports that the recruitment of Recruits was influenced and facilitated by some influential individuals.

The Police recruitment process is neither for sale nor can it be influenced, the IGP intoned.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the Force Spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, carefully detailed the recruitment process.

“The recruitment process comprises a physical screening of all applicants who have expressed interest in serving with the NPF by filling the application form online, which is totally free; a Computer-Based Test (CBT), set and organized by the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) for all who met the legal requirements for the physical screening exercise as provided by the Police Act 2020; and a Medical Screening of all applicants who passed the CBT Examination to confirm their fitness to take up the policing duty. Those who have successfully passed these processes are collated, and an equal number of them, prioritizing the best amongst them, per Local Government Area (LGA), are selected to form part of the Police Constable Intake for a particular year, including the just concluded 2021 intake.

“The process ensures that only those suited for the job are amongst the final individuals from whom the required 10,000 would be selected. It is therefore surprising and misinforming to read in the news from some quarters that the recruitment of Police Recruits, was influenced and facilitated by some individuals to suit their interest for whatever reasons best known to them,” he stated.

Therefore, the IGP has urged the general public to disregard comments ascribing glory for the efforts of young men and women who burnt the midnight candle and exerted all effort to emerge successful in the police screening exercise to some individuals for their pecuniary reasons or gains.
