Follow Up: 705k Applied For 10k Police Job

Igbonla

Last week PageOne reported that the ongoing police recruitment clocked 500k applicants who applied on the Internet. It seems the situation is bigger than what everyone expected.

The Director General of the Nigeria Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, confirmed that the final figure was 705 352 applications received.

This seemingly scandalous figure has laid bare Nigeria’s protracted youth unemployment problem. But to all who applied, we wish you a good chance of getting the job.
