Police Recruitment: DCP Blows Hot As Candidates Don't Know Name Of Nigerian President

Sola Okediji, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), FCT, has said that some constables aspiring to join Nigeria Police could not give the name of Nigeria President and the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).

Okediji disclosed this at the investigation and sensitization on rule of law training for FCT police officers, organized by the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (RoLAC), on Friday in Abuja, NAN reports.

Okediji, who said he was posted to Rivers in Port Harcourt as part of those to interview prospective constables to be enlisted into the Nigeria Police, said he was stunned when a constable could not answer the question put to him.

He said that he had asked the prospective constable “what is the name of the President of Nigeria”, to which he could not proffer an answer.

Okediji also said that he posed another question to the intending constable as to “who is the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN),” to which he could not also answer the question.

The DCP said he had no choice than to fire the constable immediately, adding that the Nigeria police would not condole such ignorance, adding that such ignorance was unacceptable to the Nigeria Police.

Okediji said that some of the constables were parading five credits in their Senior Secondary School (SSCE) certificate without being able to defend it.

He said that those who were not fast in current affairs and do not know issues happening in the country would not be allowed into the police force.

He called on the police investigators and detective on RoLAC training to apply wisdom in the course of their job, adding that they should always duplicate their case files to forestall trouble.

He, however, charged investigation officers and detective on training to have confidence in themselves while carrying out their duties, adding that when they were sound and loaded no one would push them aside.

According to him, during cross-examination, let them know you are there and rooted in the case, that is what excellent on the job means, do not collect bribe and do not encourage it.

He called on the officers not to be a part of the rot in the police but endeavor to be a solution, adding that only God could reward those who worked with the fear of God.
