Police Service Commission recommends IGP’s sack over recruitment controversy

The Joint Union Congress of the Police Service Commission (PSC) has urged President Bola Tinubu to sack the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, over his alleged meddlesomeness in the recent recruitment of constables.

Addressing a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, June 19, the union also alleged that some top officers within the Force tried to “smuggle”some names in during the recruitment process.

The aggrieved members of the union while chanting protest songs, described the reactions of the NPF as diversionary tactics.

According to them, NPF intends to prevent the president from noticing the unpreparedness of the police training schools, to handle the training of the recruits, owing to the sorry states of the facilities.

The move comes after the PSC recently released 10,000 names of successful candidates employed from the recent recruitment exercise by the commission.

The list was later rejected by the force who described the recruitment process as fraudulent.

Muyiwa Adejobi, force spokesperson, said the published list of candidates contains names of candidates who “failed either the computer-based test (CBT) or the physical screening exercise or both”.

Adejobi said some of those disqualified over medical issues “also made the list of successful candidates as published by the PSC”.
