According to Ikechukwu Ani
Head, Press and Public Relations,on Monday in Abuja, the date for the medical screening/examination for candidates for Police recruitment into the Constable cadre of the Nigeria Police Force is expected to last for two weeks and will signal the successful conclusion of the exercise.

Specialist applicants who participated in the physical and credentials screening but were not involved in the JAMB conducted Computer based tests will also be subjected to practical tests and medical screening during the period.

The exercises are expected to hold in the 17 Zonal Command Headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force and in Kaduna, Yobe and Zamfara states which have been accorded special considerations because of the security challenges in those states.

Candidates from these states are to do the screening and practical tests in their states of origin.
