The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has been chosen as the chief examiner for candidates seeking recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force in Niger State.
According to a statement by Bala Kuyar, the Niger Commissioner of Police, on Monday, WAEC will conduct the Computer Based Examination (CBT) for those already screened for the recruitment in 2020.
The statement noted that the examination would hold on Friday at the Gidan Kwanu permanent site of the Federal University of Technology.
The police commissioner called on all candidates sitting for the examination to conduct themselves in an orderly manner before, during, and after the examination, saying that adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure a hitch-free exercise.
He stated that candidates are to appear for examination in a clean white T-shirt, white shorts, and white canvas, adding that they are to equally come along with the printout of examination slips from their various e-mail accounts.
The examination is the continuation of the recruitment of 10,000 policemen into the force, which started in 2020 but was stopped following a confrontation between the Police Service Commission and the Police High Command on who should be responsible for the recruitment.
However, the Inspector General of Police (IG), Usman Alkali Baba, during a recent visit to the Niger State Police Command announced that the clash is over and recruitment has been resolved.
