Police Recruitment; Three States lead in online applications as Police Commission provides breakdown
Kaduna state is currently leading in the number of applications already received in the ongoing recruitment exercise for General Duty Constables into the Nigeria Police Force.
20,259 Kaduna state youths have already completed the online applications to lead the table while Anambra State leads from behind with only 541 applications.
Following, Kaduna State at the top are Adamawa State with 18,933 applications; Borno State with 18,305; Bauchi State, 16,554; Katsina State, 16,232 and Kano State, 15,888.
According to a statement issued on Wednesday, October 25, by the Head Press and public relations of the Police Service Commission (PSC), Ikechukwu Ani said: “Next to Anambra State from the rear are; Ebonyi, 737; Abia, 966 and Imo 999. Bayelsa, has 1020; Enugu, 1036; Lagos, 1259; Delta, 1338 and Edo 1526.
“Meanwhile 242, 391 males have already completed their applications while only 35,405 females have registered their presence.”
Ani said the chairman of the commission, Solomon Arase, has expressed concern about the continued disinterest of South East youths in pursuing a career in the Nigeria Police Force.
“Dr Arase noted that the South East, currently a hotbed for non-state actors’ rebellion in the country should have been at the forefront to join the Nigeria Police Force and bring the indigenous solution to the menace.”
He called on the leadership of the zone to find a way of convincing its youths to embrace the opportunity the ongoing recruitment has provided.
The PSC chairman said it will be difficult for anybody to listen to cries of marginalisation from leaders of the zone if they choose to remain indifferent to the Government’s generous decision to offer employment to Nigerian youths in the Police Force.
Arase said they should maximize the remaining five weeks open for their youths to get onto the train.
