He gave the breakdown of the applicants as: Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police – 22,454 – made up of 10,290 for general duties and 12,164 specialists; Cadet Inspectors – 24,456 – made up of 11,639 for general duties and 12, 817 for specialists and Constables – 63,559 – comprising 40,492 for general duties and 23,067 for specialists.

He informed the journalists that state governors had been asked to place advertisements on radio and television to inform their citizens about the examination and the venue.

According to him, 115 applicants were arrested for breaches ranging from document forgery to impersonation and others. Those found wanting have since been handed over to the police for investigation and prosecution.

He also said some candidates were screened out of the exercise for being over-age, falsifying or forging documents, tattoo marks, and having physical deformities, among other issues.
Okiro also debunked rumours that he was under pressure to favour some candidates, adding that the PSC adhered strictly to laid down requirements.

“The commission adhered strictly to the requirements in terms of qualifications and physical features. Many applicants who failed to meet these requirements were dropped.

“The screening exercise will start on Monday with the aptitude test for Cadet ASPs for both general duty and specialists.

On Tuesday, it will be the turn of Cadet Inspectors, also for both general duty and specialists. The Constables from both cadres will take their turn on Wednesday,” he said.

He also said results of the paper tests would be out within a few days, assuring that no one would see the questions until the exams day.

He warned state coordinators against compromising the exercise, warning that they would be held responsible for any breach of the rules.
