Hon. Adamu Aliyu, a member of the Plateau State House of Assembly, has criticised the rejection of Hausa and Fulani applicants from Jos North Local Government Area in the state police command’s ongoing recruiting exercise.
Hon. Aliyu protested at the state police command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) office in response to news that some of his constituency’s candidates had been rejected by some screening officers.
“I am appealing to the Police Service Commission to do all that is lawfully necessary in ensuring that my people are not shortchanged. I am calling on the police service commission to intervene. It is unfair to begin to see this kind of discrimination in FG’s recruitment,” he said.
The police spokesman, DSP Alfred Alabo, did not respond to inquiries by our correspondent as at the time of filing this report.
