Police Commission decries 90 percent failure rate among job applicants

The Police Service Commission, PSC, has lamented the high failure rate of more than 90 percent amongst applicants; seeking recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force

This was disclosed on Thursday, January 13; by the Commissioner representing Human Rights and Non-Governmental Organizations, NGOs, in the Police Commission, Mr. Rommy Mom; who made this known at a Community Engagement Forum organised by the PSC in Makurdi, Benue State.

Mom stated that it was disheartening; that the applicants fail to score up to 30 percent in the exams.

He said the development among others was a major challenge the Commission would work hard; to correct in future recruitment exercises the PSC would conduct.

According to Mr. Mom: “The PSC during these recruitments has some observations; which are rather disheartening and we hope there will be a reversal going forward. Security is key to the development and enjoyment of peace.

“An additional concern is the fact that most of the applicants seem academically challenged; as more than 90 percent of the applicants have consistently failed; to score up to 30 percent in the examination.

“This is a sad reflection of the caliber of officers that will be patrolling our communities; in the event that these persons actually end up being enlisted; into the police.

“The society must encourage upright and responsible citizens to apply for recruitment; if our responsible and upright young ones are discouraged from joining the police; where are we going to source for the police officers of our dreams?”
