Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun

The Nigeria Police Force has rejected the PSC’s recruitment list, alleging irregularities and corruption that allegedly marred the recently released list of successful candidates in the ongoing 2022/23 police constables recruitment.

In a press statement on Saturday, Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated that scrutiny of the published list revealed several anomalies.

“Several names of persons purported to be names of successful candidates are those who did not even apply and therefore did not take part in the recruitment exercise,” he said.

“The reaction of the IGP was without prejudice to the power of the commission to recruit for the police as ruled by the Supreme court but this power does not include the power to recruit unqualified and untrained individuals for the police,” Adejobi stated.

He added, “Noting that it is the police that bears the brunt of recruitment of unqualified individuals and not the PSC. The same people who recruited anyhow for the police today will turn round to accuse the police tomorrow of inefficiency when their recruits start messing up.”
