The Police Service Commission (PSC) has suspended the 2022 recruitment of Constables after a protest by the Force Headquarters.
The PSC in a statement by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, Head of Press and Public Relations on Tuesday in Abuja, said the suspension of the recruitment exercise was to resolve all contending issues with the Nigeria Police Force.
The PSC said its action was in the interest of the nation and enjoined all interested applicants to be patient while the issues were being resolved.
The commission said it would continue to strive to give Nigerians a Police Force to be proud of.
Recall that the Force Headquarters on Monday said it had not commenced recruitment process for the 2022 batch of Constables, contrary to a publication by the PSC.
The PSC had on Aug. 11 issued a publication in the media on the commencement of the 2022 recruitment of Constables into the Nigeria Force.
The Force Headquarters, however, said it had no connection with the advert, which it said was not in tandem with the Police recruitment process and called on the public to disregard it.
