The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has commenced training of the successful candidates from the recent recruitment exercise sanctioned by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Force Public Relations Officer (PRO), ACP Moshood Jimoh, in a statement yesterday, said it is consequent on the release of names of successful candidates by the Police Service Commission (PSC).
Jimoh said the training commenced on Friday June 8, 2018, in all Designated Police training institutions across the country.
He added that resumption and documentation closes on Wednesday, June 13, 2018.
The statement read in parts: â€œThe Nigeria Police Force wishes to inform all candidates that participated in the medical screening test held between 1st â€“ 3rd June, 2018, in the just concluded recruitment screening exercise into the Nigeria Police Force that training for all successful candidates commences on Friday, 8th June 2018, in all designated Police training institutions across the country,â€ he stated.
The Force PRO said successful candidates have been notified through text messages and via email.
He however, asked those who did not receive the message to check for their names and training institution through the NPF and PSC websites.
Jimoh said the list of successful candidates and their respective training Institutions where they are going to be trained are displayed at every state command headquarters in the 36 states and the FCT.
On training requirement, he directed the prospective recruits to come along with pairs of white shorts, pairs of white round neck vest, pairs of white canvas, pairs of white socks, white pillow cases, pairs of bed sheets, sport wears, mosquito net, cutleries, brooms, cutlass, and other personal effects. They are expected to come along with their certificates, credentials and 16 recent passport photographs.
â€œResumption and documentation closes on 13th June, 2018, in all the training schools. Prospective recruits are expected to arrive the training institutions before the expiration of the date,â€ he said.
He warned that failure to report at the Training Schools by June 13, 2018, means that such candidate has declined his/her offer for recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force.
