The Police Service Commission (PSC) has released the list of 10,000 people who applied for constable and specialist cadre roles in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

PSC said the successful applicants were spread across the 774 LGAs in the country.

In a statement on Tuesday, Ikechukwu Ani, PSC spokesperson, said 9,000 applicants were approved for recruitment for general duty while 1,000 applicants were recruited for the specialist cadre.

Solomon Arase, PSC chairman, said the selection process was rigorous in a bid to enhance the capacity and effectiveness of the force.


Arase said 10 applicants were selected from each of the LGAs in the country as advised by the national assembly.

“I am filled with optimism because these young men and women represent the future of our nation’s security,” Arase was quoted as saying.

“It is our collective responsibility to ensure that their journey begins on a foundation of integrity, transparency and excellence.


“The list of successful candidates must be presented to the public in a manner compliant with the Nigeria Data protection Act of 2023.”
