The recruitment of 10,000 Policemen by the Police Service Commission (PSC) will begin today. President Muhammadu Buhari, last year, at the National Security Summit in Abuja directed the recruitment of 10,000 Nigerians into the force to address the shortfall in manpower. Speaking on the recruitment yesterday, the PSC Chairman, Mike Okiro, warned its workers, who would be involved in the screening of candidates, to avoid any act that would compromise the integrity of the exercise.
He said any worker involved in any misconduct during the exercise would be sanctioned in line with the public service rules and may be prosecuted for sabotage. The PSC chairman urged candidates to desist from indulging or inducing the commission’s workers as anyone caught would be arrested and prosecuted.
