Police Urges Nigerians To Disregard Story On Constable Recruitment Commencement

The Nigeria Police Force has asked well-meaning members of the public disregard a publication on Page 21 of Daily Sun Newspaper of Thursday, 11 August 2022, purportedly by the Police Service Commission (PSC), which claims that it has commenced the 2022 Police Constables recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force.

In a statement signed and delivered to the Atlantic Post on Monday, 22 August 2022, by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Police similarly stated unequivocally that the advert has no connection with the Nigeria Police Force nor is it in tandem with the Police recruitment process, and should be disregarded in all its entirety.

The Police also stated that the website to which the publication refers intending candidates – http://www.recruitment.psc.gov.ng – is not associated with the Nigeria Police Force.

“The Nigeria Police Force hereby calls on all stakeholders and intending applicants to discountenance the information in both the newspaper and on the portal as the website is not the official portal for Police Constables recruitment.

“Nigeria Police Force thereby assures well-meaning Nigerians that the commencement of the 2022 recruitment exercise will be announced via the official police e-recruitment website – https://policerecruitment.gov.ng, the Nigeria Police Force official website – https://www.npf.gov.ng, and advertisements on national dailies and official police social media accounts as and when due,” the Police spokesman further stated.
