37,000 Job-Seeking Nigerians Anxious After JAMB Exams As Police Recruits 6,000

No less than 37,000 job-seeking Nigerians who applied to be enlisted into the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and sat for a computer-based aptitude (CBA) examination organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Friday are eagerly awaiting the outcome of the exercise.

This is to know if they would be among the 6,000 to join the Force.

Speaking while monitoring the examination in Abuja, JAMB Registrar, Dr. Ishaq Oloyede, congratulated the Nigeria Police for approaching the Board in search of excellence.

His words: “We conduct examinations for different agencies, both in the public and private sectors, because we have the facilities that we use may be once or twice in a year. It is a public facility and at minimum cost, we allow people to use the system.

“We have many people who believe in us and they patronise us, particularly those who want to do things transparently.

“If you want to do something that is not that transparent, JAMB is not the right place to go. But if you want to set the rules and you want the rules to be enforced and transparently so, JAMB will give you the services at a cost you cannot get elsewhere, because we are using already established facility and it is a public facility. All we ensure is that there must be a set standard and the standard must be enforced.

“I congratulate the Nigeria Police. So far so good, they comply with all the agreements about setting standard and ensuring that there would be no waiver at any point in time.

“We have done about 16 agencies this year and we are starting another one in the next few week. We will be starting the Road Safety Corps very soon and we have assisted MTN, EFCC, Christian Pilgrims Commission, West Africa College of Surgeons and National Postgraduate College and all those who want excellent and transparent test. We will ensure that when it comes to CBT examination, the place to go is JAMB.”

The JAMB registrar also noted that the number of vacancies and level of performance would determine the cut-off mark for the Police recruitment.
