The Chairman, Police Service Commission (PSC), Mr Mike Okiro has okayed the conduct of aptitude test for recruitment into the Nigeria Police Force across the country.Okiro who is the national coordinator of the exercise said this in a statement issued by the Head, Press and Public Relations of the Commission, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, in Abuja.
Appraising the exercise, Okiro said reports from the aptitude test centres showed that the exercise was orderly, noting there were initial hitches on the first day but that it had normalised on the second day.
He explained that some of the problems were related to applicants who did not receive invitation through emails for the tests.
He said that the Commission had issued a statement asking such candidates to crosscheck their names on the master list pasted at the venues.
He added that some of the applicants did not have email accounts but generated one at business centres which they never went back to check.
Okiro said that state coordinators were directed to admit applicants who had no copies of their invitation through emails but had their names in the master list.
He said the Commission would begin screening of documents and physical attributes of the Specialists on Aug. 29.
The Commission had shortlisted 110,469 applicants out of the 338,250 invited for the just concluded screening in 36 states of the federation and the FCT for the tests.
