Police recruitment: Applicants not qualified -IG

Inspector General of Police , Mr. Solomon Arase, has said that most applicants seeking enrolment into the police force are not qualified.

The IG disclosed this in Abuja during an interactive session with journalists.
According to him: “The final process is going to be next month because all those that are uploading details are about 30, 34 years. All those ones are too old. We won’t select them.

“So, all those 700, 000 or 800, 000 you are seeing, a lot of them will be knocked out when the system meets them because when you don’t meet the age criterion, you are sorted out(removed).

“When your academic qualification doesn’t meet up, you are sorted out.

“There will be examination, but it will come out from the various states and once we know the numbers, we point them state by state and all government people will do their own.

“The state will do theirs and it will come from the bottom to the top.”
Mr. Arase expressed his amazement at the large number of applications following President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval for the recruitment of 10,000 police officers.

He said that the Police Service Commission had received 843,008 applications as of May 2 from applicants seeking enlistment into the force, and the exercise will close on May 13, 2016.

“I never knew Nigerians would like the police like this,” Arase said.
