The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has stated that the computer-based testing (CBT) examinations for its 2021 constable recruitment exercise will hold between April 20 to April 21, 2022.
This was contained in a statement released on the NPF’s social media handles.
The NPF while announcing the examination date, call on all the candidates in the ongoing 2021 recruitment exercise for Police Constables, who applied and attended the physical screening exercise, to check their recruitment status and print their slips on its official website.
