What's going on with the NPF list of successful recruits as PSC and Force PRO discredit official list?

Posted by Afam Nnaji | 4 weeks ago | 58 times


It is unfortunate that the Nigeria Police Force published a list of successful recruits on their website but the Police Service Commission and recently the Force PRO have come out to discredit the list with the PSC describing the list as an act of illegality and a breach of federal character requirements.

Disregard candidates’ list for police recruitment, PSC tells Nigerians

October 16, 2019 by Nkwelle Ogidi Anambra (TheNation)

The Police Service Commission (PSC) has advised the public to disregard a list of candidates scheduled for training and allegedly released by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) for recruitment into the Constable cadre.

A statement in Abuja by the commission’s Head of Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani, said the release of the list by the police was an act of illegality and a breach of the Federal Character requirements.

The statement reads: “The Police Service Commission dissociates itself from a purported list of candidates scheduled for training and allegedly released by the NPF in respect of the recruitment exercise into the Constable cadre of the Force. The commission notes that the list released by the police is an act of illegality, and from close observation, was in serious breach of the Federal Character requirements.

“The commission urges the public to be wary of the list as it will soon resume the remaining stages of the recruitment process and release the authentic list of successful candidates, local government by local government.

“The commission is presently in court against the NPF over the hijack of its constitutional powers to recruit and had filed an originating summons and interlocutory injunction restraining the NPF from going ahead with the exercise.

“The processes filed since September 27, 2019, by Kanu G. Agabi, CON, SAN, were brought to the knowledge of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) the same day…”

“In the letter notifying the IGP of the pendency of the suit, Kanu Agabi had said: “We write to inform you of the pendency of the above mentioned suit before the Federal High Court, Abuja. By this notice, you are to stay further action in the subject matter of this suit, pending the hearing and determination of the case.

“It is unfortunate that despite the pendency of the court processes, the NPF went ahead to release a purported list of candidates it has invited for training.

“The commission wishes to state that the list is unknown to it as it believes it is a product of illegality. The hearing for the commission’s suit has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 23 at the Federal High Court 5, Abuja.”

From DCP Frank Mba

LIST OF SUCCESSFUL RECRUITS TO BE RELEASED AFTER IGP'S VETTING AND APPROVAL. 

The members of the general public, particularly candidates who participated in the on-going recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Police Force are hereby advised to note that the final list of successful candidates will be released only after the receipt of the Recruitment Report and final vetting of the list by the Inspector General of Police. 

Currently, the Inspector General of Police,  IGP Mohammed Adamu NPM, mni, is out of the country on an official assignment and has not received the final report of the exercise containing list of successful candidates for the  Police Constables recruitment.

Candidates who participated in the recruitment process are advised to exercise patience as the final and authenticated list of successful candidates,  including the date of resumption for training will be officially released and widely announced in both print, electronic and social media platforms in line with the established police processes as soon as the Inspector General of Police returns,  formally receives the Recruitment Report,  vets, and grants requisite approval.

DCP Frank Mba. 
Force Public Relations Officer, 
Nigeria Police Force, 
Force Headquarters, 
Abuja.

Now, does it mean that the Nigeria Police Force cannot get a simple recruitment process right without all these contradictory statements coming from the same institution?
