The Nigeria Police Force, Ebonyi State Command, has said that over 1,679 applicants were shortlisted for the screening/recruitment exercise into its Constable cadre.
Concise News understands that the Police Public Relations Officer, Ebonyi Command, Loveth Odah, noted this in Abakaliki, the capital of the state on Wednesday.
Odah said those who passed this stage of the recruitment exercise will be shortlisted for the next phase.
“We shortlisted 1,679 applicants from the 13 local government areas who applied for the 2018/2019 Police Recruitment exercise,” she told NAN.
“The exercise which is mainly for the lower cadre is for the recruitment of constables into the force but the challenges we are having in the screening is that those shortlisted are not coming forth for the screening.
“It is actually affecting the number of candidates we are expected to screen per day and this development is not good for the state because it may affect Ebonyi quota for the final intakes.
“The command has intensified announcements using radio and television stations in the state to urge the shortlisted applicants to come forward for the recruitment exercise.”
