Police recruitment Board announces date for practical test/medical screening for Applicants 

The Police Recruitment Board yesterday fixed April 16 for practical tests/medical screening of specialist applicants in the ongoing recruitment of Constables into the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The tests will run concurrently with the medical screening of general duty applicants and specialists, which had earlier been scheduled to start on April 16 and will last two weeks.


A statement yesterday in Abuja by the spokesperson of the Police Service Commission (PSC), Ikechukwu Ani, said applicants were expected to be tested in various fields, including band, carpentry, communication, driving, electrical, information technology, masonry and marine technology.

Other fields include mechanic, medical assistants, painting, plumbing, tiling, printing, welding, and veterinary assistants.

The practical tests have been scheduled to hold at 20 locations nationwide, which are the 17 zonal command headquarters and Kaduna, Yobe, and Zamfara states’ command headquarters.

Specialist applicants from these states are to do their practical tests in their respective states of origin.

Also, PSC Chairman Solomon Arase has said the commission was desirous of returning the NPF to its glorious past when its specialists were the best and when the force handled most of its ancillary services by itself.

Arase noted that the police force then had seasoned mechanics that handled repairs of its vehicles, masons that built police barracks, engineers who were into road construction and tailors who sewed police uniforms, among others.

He said the practical tests for the specialist applicants would be meticulously handled to ensure that the best hands get selected.
