Ahead of the anticipated recruitment of 10, 000 eligible Nigerians into the Nigeria Police Force next year, the Deputy Inspector General, Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (FCIID), Area 10, Mr Christopher Kakwe, has said that anybody without evidence of enrolment with the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, will not be considered for employment.
DIG Kakwe said the decision was taken by the Police Force Management Team recently.
Speaking at the NIMC-BVN press conference, held in Abuja at the weekend, Kakwe commended the federal government’s decision for other data capturing agencies to key into the NIMC database.
He said, “We have decided at the police management team that for any recruitment, you have to show evidence that you have registered with NIMC before we can even think about screening you.
“This initiative, which the federal government has directed other agencies to key into, is very vital to our very existence as a nation”.
The AIG also called on other agencies to do the same so that the nation would have specific data at the end of the day.
