Senate Asks Police to Stop Recruitment Process Over Irregularity
After initial hiccups, the recruitment, which finally took off in August, was discovered to be lopsided. Earlier, stakeholders had agreed that the recruitment would be based on local government areas, Daily Trust reports.
But the commission allegedly decided to base the exercise on equal number per state, claiming orders from above. Already, the presidency has reportedly directed the PSC Chairman, Mike Okiro, to explain the flaw pointed out by the red chamber.
Reacting, PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, said the recruitment exercise had not been suspended. Checks and recent events counter his position as there had been no major news on the recruitment since applicants wrote their aptitude tests late August.
An applicant of Akwa Ibom origin, who wrote the test, confirmed to DAILY POST that neither he nor those he exchanged contact with have been contacted.
“They told us they will invite us for the next stage, but nothing yet. Last week, I called some guys I met at the venue and they too said they have not received any update,” he disclosed.
