The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has been designated as the chief examiner for candidates seeking recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force in Niger State.
WAEC will conduct the Computer-based Examination (CBT) for those already screened for the recruitment in 2020.
The state Police Commissioner, Mr. Monday Bala Kuyar, said in a statement made available to journalists in Minna yesterday that the examination would hold on this Friday at the Gidan Kwanu permanent site of the Federal University of Technology.
Kuyar warned candidates sitting for the examination “to conduct themselves in an orderly manner before, during and after the examination,” saying: “Adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure a hitch-free exercise.”
In addition, the police boss said the candidates are to appear for the examination in clean white T-shirt, white short, and white canvas shoe, adding that they are to equally come along with the print out of examination slips from their various e-mail accounts.
The examination is the continuation of the recruitment of 10,000 policemen into the force, an exercise which started in 2020 but was stopped following a faceoff between the Police Service Commission (PSC) and the Police high command on who should be responsible for the recruitment.
However, the Inspector General of Police (IG), Alhaji Alkali Baba, during a recent visit to the Niger State Police Command, announced that the dispute over who should be responsible for the recruitment has been resolved but did not say in whose favour.
