The Punch Newspaper reported this morning that President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday warned that he would not tolerate past practice of extorting money from applicants before being recruited into the police force.
The President gave this warning sequel to Monday’s approval by him for the recruitment of 10,000 policemen and women.
He said that he would not tolerate any irregularities or extortion of money from unemployed Nigerians in the coming recruitment into the police.
“You must ensure that the recruitment process is transparent. Those who will conduct the recruitment must be above board. It should not be heard that they receive gratification or extort money from those who want to enlist in the police,” the President warned.
