Police Give Update On Recruitment Exercise, Announce Date For Medical Screening

The Nigeria Police Force has extended its ongoing online registration for the intake of constables.

Naija News recalls that the force had announced the commencement of the recruitment exercise in a statement signed and issued on November 29, 2021 by the Police Headquarters Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba.

It noted in the statement that recruitment into the Nigerian Police Force constable starts the same day and will span through January 10 after which candidates would start receiving invitations for screening from 10th January 2022 upon successful upload of all the required information on the registration portal.

The force has, however, confirmed the extension of the registration closing date.

A statement made available to newsmen today revealed that the new deadline for the registration on the portal is now Saturday, January 22, 2022.

With this extension, the NPF recruitment portal will remain open till midnight of the new date,” Police Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, said in a statement on Wednesday.

The PPRO added: “The extension of the online application is informed by the need to ensure equal opportunity and even spread of applications, particularly from States in the South-East, South-South geopolitical zones and Lagos State, to enable them meet up with the required quota for their respective areas.

“A statistical analysis shows that a total of 81,005 applications were received nationwide as at January 7, 2022. Out of this figure, only 1,404 applications – less than 2 per cent of the total applications – were received from the five States in the South East and 261 from Lagos State, with Anambra State having the least figure of 158 applicants.”

Mba in the statement, urged states and local governments, religious bodies and other interest groups in the affected Geopolitical zones and Lagos State to assist in mobilizing and encouraging their citizens and wards to take advantage of the opportunity to seek a career path in the Nigeria Police Force.

He also admonished all interested applicants to visit NPF recruitment portal to fill in their details before the expiration of the new deadline.

The statement added: “Applicants are further advised to call 08100004507 for any inquiry or complaints or technical difficulties in the use of the portal.

“The recruitment exercise is absolutely free of charge.”
