The Nigeria Police Force has extended online registration in the ongoing 2021 recruitment exercise for interested and eligible Nigerians into the service of the Nigeria Police Force as Police Constables to Saturday, January 22, 2022.
With this extension, the police recruitment portal will remain open till midnight of the new date.
The Force, in a statement signed by its spokesperson, CP Frank Mba, explained that the extension is informed by the need to ensure equal opportunity and even spread of applications, particularly from States in the South-East, South-South geopolitical zones and Lagos State, to enable them meet up with the required quota for their respective areas.
It revealed that a total of 81,005 applications were received nationwide as at January 7, 2022, out of which only 1,404 applications – less than 2 percent of the total applications were received from the five States in the South East and 261 from Lagos State with Anambra State having the least figure of 158 applicants.
“Consequently, the Force enjoins States and Local Governments, religious bodies and other interest groups in the affected Geopolitical zones and Lagos State to assist in mobilizing and encouraging their citizens and wards to take advantage of the opportunity to seek a career path in the Nigeria Police Force,” the statement read.
The Force urged all interested applicants to log-on to the NPF recruitment portal, www.policerecruitment.gov.ng to register before the expiration of the new deadline.
