Applicants in the ongoing police recruitment have begun to approach health workers working with government hospitals for medical certificates.
The Police Service Commission during the week commenced the process of employing 10,000 youths to bolster its rank, directing interested candidates to apply through its website, www.psc.gov.ng or that of the Nigeria Police Force, www.npf.gov.ng.
It said among others that interested candidates must be certified mentally and physically fit by a Nigeria Police medical doctor or government medical practitioner.
Sources said the demand for medical certificates from government owned hospitals jumped to record high following the police recruitment as applicants besieged hospitals with requests for it.
It was said that many disregarded the idea of going through the process and submit themselves to medical checkup.
“They preferred to pay health workers or touts to get them medical certificates,” sources revealed.
