He said “The exercise was not captured in the 2015 budget, so we could not begin the recruitment immediately, when the directive was given, however, we have worked out modalities for the planned recruitment into the police force. “Once things about their payment was put in place we will begin recruitment. We are ready for the exercise.
“The Commission would try to avoid the mistake of 1999 exercise when thieves and armed robbers were recruited and we expect to have better police officers during the exercise, unlike in 1999 recruitment, when we had all sorts of people recruited into the police force.”
The PSC boss also warned Nigerians not to pay any money to anybody or recruitment agency, because the forms will be free.
