The Police Service Commission (PSC) on Thursday said it shortlisted 338,227 applicants out of the 911,438 that applied for recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force.
Speaking at a news conference in Abuja, chairman of the Commission, Mr Mike Okiro said screening of successful applicants would begin on June 6 in the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
“I would like to emphasise that the initial shortlisting of applicants was done electronically,” he said.
“Invitation letters were also sent to successful applicants through SMS and to their personal email addresses.”
However, he warned applicants against fake letters from criminal elements, stressing that “the invitation states the date for each person’s screening and venue of the screening.
“Applicants will be grouped according to their local government areas and a date fixed for their screening.”
Okiro explained that after the screening, successful candidates would be invited to a zonal screening to be held in the 12 police zonal headquarters in the country.
He said the national interview would be held in Abuja, where those who were successful at the zonal screening would be interviewed.
