2021 Recruitment: Online registration for police constables extended, as portal closes Jan 22


The Nigeria Police Force has urged citizens that the online registration in the ongoing 2021 recruitment exercise for interested and eligible Nigerians into the service of the Nigeria Police Force as Police Constables, has been extended to Saturday, January 22, 2022.

A statement signed by Force PRO CP Frank Mba said with this extension, the NPF recruitment portal will remain open till midnight of the new date.

He added that the extension of the online application is informed by the need to ensure equal opportunity and even spread of applications, particularly from States in the South-East, South-South geopolitical zones and Lagos State, to enable them to meet up with the required quota for their respective areas.

According to him, a statistical analysis shows that a total of 81,005 applications were received nationwide as of January 7, 2022. Out of this figure, only 1,404 applications – less than 2% of the total applications – were received from the five states in the South East and 261 from Lagos State, with Anambra State having the least figure of 158 applicants.

Mba noted that the Force enjoins States and Local Governments, religious bodies and other interest groups in the affected Geopolitical zones and Lagos State to assist in mobilizing and encouraging their citizens and wards to take advantage of the opportunity to seek a career path in Nigeria Police Force. Interested applicants are urged to log on to the NPF recruitment portal, www.policerecruitment.gov.ng to register before the expiration of the new deadline.

He further added that applicants are advised to call 08100004507 for any inquiry or complaints or technical difficulties in the use of the portal, adding that the recruitment exercise is absolutely free of charge.
