  1. I was so fragabasted when i read an article yesterday concerning the Nigerian police force recruitment exercise,when i learnt that majority of the applicants are between 30-34 yrs of age.Frankly speaking i hope this won’t be an avenue for the PSC to disqualify genuine and credible applicants that has the zeal to work and move the NPF to meet best international policing standard.Unlike other forces that do make their screening of certificates,date for aptitude test and other programmes known to their applicants…NPF!choose to trend on the path of selection,which is a barbaric way of determining the best in a multitude of almost a million applicants.All i ask is transparency in the selection,Iam also an applicant seeking a position of a police inspector,thanks.

  2. Comment:I am 32 years old and I have longed for this opportunity but is like my dream oh oh oh I am crying. pls look into that ageing thing.

  3. Comment: honestly speaking since when i was young i luv NPF, and i am dying to be in the Nigerian Police Force! Ohh Help me lord
