By Adadareporters

The date for the medical screening in the recruitment into the Constable cadre of the Nigeria Police Force has been rescheduled to commence on Tuesday, April 16th, 2024 due to the ongoing Muslim Ramadan fast and the Christian lenten period.

The screening is expected to last for two weeks and will signal the successful conclusion of the exercise.

This was announced by the Police Service Commission in a release by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, its Head, Press and Public Relations.

According to him, “Specialist applicants who participated in the physical and credentials screening but were not involved in the JAMB conducted computer-based tests will also be subjected to practical tests and medical screening during the period.

“The exercises are expected to hold in the 17 Zonal Command Headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force and in Kaduna, Yobe and Zamfara states which have been accorded special considerations because of the security challenges in those states. Candidates from these states are to do the screening and practical tests in their states of origin.

“Police colleges situated in states hosting the Zonal Command Headquarters will also provide venues for the exercises.

“The Police Recruitment Board will contact shortlisted candidates with detailed information on where and when they are expected to arrive at the venues of their screening.

“Successful candidates from the medical screening will proceed to Police Colleges for their mandatory training.”

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Police Service Commission and National Cordinator of the Recruitment Exercise, Dr Solomon Arase, has expressed his happiness that at last the exercise is successfully coming to an end and more “boots ready to be injected into the system to join the battle to sanitize the security space”.

He assured that the new recruits had been painstakingly selected in the best possible processes that “meet international standards and our local and peculiar challenges”.

Quoting him, “We are meticulously looking for high flyers and committed young Nigerians who will grow to become the bedrock of a new Nigeria security architecture. We are following every step of the recruitment with the required scrutiny and sense of purpose and we believe that as we continue with subsequent recruitments, we will have enough boots on the ground to recover the ungoverned spaces across the nation.”

Dr Arase commended the Registrar and Chief Executive of Joint Admission and Martriculation Board, JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, and his Management team for the success of the CBT, adding that JAMB has since built a reputation of excellence and reliability in computer based examinations in the country.
