2020 Police Recruitment Exercise: If You Belong to These Categories, Don't Bother to Apply

Another opportunity is beckoning from the Nigerian Police Force and the youths have been enjoined to grab the privilege and better their lives especially at this trying time when job has become gold.

The security agency has on Saturday made the announcement that it has commenced the recruitment of qualified individuals across the country into the position of constable officers.

The announcement which was made by the FCT Command spokesman, Frank Mba was said to have come at the right time when several Nigerian youths who are out of job due to covid-19 pandemic are desperately in need of something to bank on.

But the offer doesn't seem to be coming without strigent conditions attached to it. As it makes a good news to some, the conditions have made it a bad news for others.

Although for a certain set of people who would be applying for it, there will always be a short cut to the top of palm tree. This has always been achieved on the basis of contact, influence and connections with those that matter in the corridors of power.

But for those who do not belong to this class, this condition is meant for them and they will have to fulfill every item of it before they can think of getting anywhere with their application.

According to Frank Mba, applicants must fulfill these requirements in the online registration before they can be considered:

1. Applicants must not be less than 17 years old and must not be more than 25 years of age. In other word, the job is basically meant for the youths and not for adults or men. 

Hence, if you heard that police is recruiting and you feel it is an opportunity to get fixed up after loosing a job or unable to find one, you are wrong for as long as you are above the age bracket.

2. Applicants are expected to be SSCE holder with five credit pass which must include English and Mathematics.

Ordinary pass in either of the two is not acceptable. Being a government job does not make it an exercise to be compromised. Therefore, If your o level is defective in anyway, don't bother to apply.

3. Applicants are expected to be medically fit, psychologically balanced and physically strong. 

For men, the appropriate height is pegged at 1.67m while women is 1.64m. if you are shorter than this measurements in height, you are not expected to apply.

4. As a lady, you are not expected to apply with pregnancy. Even if your pregnancy is less than a week old, it is not safe for you to give it a shot. And if you try it, you will be detected and disqualify along the line.

Don't subject yourself and unborn baby to undue risk in the name of joining police force.

5. Also applicants with various form of deformity should also shelve their plans to join the force. For example, those with sight defect, hands or leg deformity are not actually expected to give it a second thought.

Police job is really meant for able bodies who can deploy their physical and psychological strength to solve a physical crisis in the society.

Hence, if you belong to any of the categories mentioned above, the police recruitment is not meant for you. Nock it off your mind.
