The Police Service Commission has placed the recruitment of 1o,000 personnel on hold.

In a statement on Friday, Ikechukwu Ani, spokesman of the commission, said the decision was made in order to finalise the remaining stage of the exercise.

He said the mandate of the commission to recruit personnel will be well utilised, and asked that applicants await further directives.

“The Commission wishes to put the on-going exercise on hold in order to finalize the remaining stage of the exercise. Candidates are to wait for further directives from the Commission,” he said.

Ani said the decision to place the  recruitment of Nigerians into the force ”whether as constables, cadet inspectors or cadet ASPs on hold is a constitutional responsibility of the commission”.

“The Commission will resist any attempt to ambush the on-going recruitment exercise or dilute its content. It notes that such an attempt will be an affront on the Constitution and a waste of national resources,” he said.

In 2017, Ibrahim Idris, former inspector-general of police (IGP), said the force will recruit at least 10,000 personnel annually to enhance its operations.
