The recruitment of 10,000 personnel into the Nigeria Police will now continue as the Senate has lifted its
suspension on the exercise.
The new condition is that the new policemen will be employed based on their local government areas and would be deployed in their communities.
The recruitment was suspended following a clash between the Senate and the Police Service Commission.
The Senate had, in a letter four weeks ago, asked the PSC to suspend the recruitment over alleged irregularities in the criteria adopted.
The lawmakers had asked that the recruitment be done on local government but the PSC insisted that it should be done on state basis.
