The Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) has called on applicants that applied for job placement in the Commission in 2020 and the general public to bear with the delay in the process of recruitment.
The Commission had in mid-2021 obtained approval to complete the process but it was suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It explained that in order to give every applicant a fair chance and at the same time get the best, ICPC decided to apply online tests to prune down the number of applicants, using international best practices.
A statement by ICPC spokesperson, Mrs. Azuka Ogugua, said that for a recruitment approval for less than 200 officers, the Commission received almost 400,000 applications from Nigerians.
The statement reads in part: “Through the service of a recruitment consultant, the Commission has so far conducted a number of rounds of on-line tests, including some repeat tests to accommodate numerous complaints of non-receipt of notification of tests, emails, spam of notification emails, complaints of timing-out of test portal, non-submission of fully completed or half completed tests, loss of access to registered email address of applicants, forgotten passwords, and so on. Applicants with further complaints are advised to forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org
“The Commission at extra cost decided to notify applicants by SMS of the dates of tests and advisory that they should check their mails and spam folders for the test email.
“Following this step, only successful applicants including those with specialized skills that are shortlisted will be further invited for follow up tests, which may be virtual or physical with effect from September, 2021.
“The pruning down process will continue until the Commission arrives at a manageable number of qualified applicants that may be further processed by one on one interviews, certificate verification, health certification, character profiling and other assessments befitting of a law enforcement agency.”
The Commission reminded applicants that the entire process is at no cost and urged the general public to report all requests for money or promises of facilitation to the Commission through its website or toll free line 0800 2255 4272 or 0803-123-0280, 0803-123-0281, 0705-699-0190 and 0705-699-0191.
