POLICE EXTEND 2021 ONLINE RECRUITMENT OF CONSTABLES BY TEN DAYS
The Nigeria Police Force has announced a Ten-Day extension of online registration in the ongoing 2021 Police Constable recruitment exercise for qualified and eligible Nigerians.
With this extension, the new deadline for registration is now Saturday, January 22, 2022. The NPF recruitment portal will therefore remain open till Midnight of the new date.
The Force, via a Press Release on Wednesday said the extension was informed by the need to ensure equal opportunity and even spread of applications, particularly from States in the South-East, South-South zones, as well as Lagos State, to enable them meet up with the required quota for their respective areas.
"A statistical analysis shows that a total of 81,005 applications were received nationwide as at January 7, 2022. Out of this figure, only 1,404 applications - less than 2% of the total applications - were received from the Five States in the South East and 261 from Lagos State, with Anambra State having the least figure of 158 applicants.
"Consequently, the Force enjoins States and Local Governments, religious bodies and other interest groups in the affected Geo-political zones and Lagos State to assist in mobilizing and encouraging their citizens and wards to take advantage of the opportunity to seek a career path in the Nigeria Police Force", the statement read in part.
Interested applicants are urged to log-on to the NPF recruitment portal on www.policerecruitment.gov.ng to register before the expiration of the new deadline. The statement also indicated that the entire recruitment process is free of charge.
