  8. This is too much, lack of employment has turn Nigerian youth to something else, whereas, the official will employ a little. please employ many of them oo

  9. Do they really like or have passion for policing or they are only applying because no jobs in Nigeria

  10. The security of lives and property remains Paramount
    They should be selected meritoriously not by nepotism

  11. Most people who are employed into the security system in Nigeria have little or no passion for the job, they just do it because they have nothing to do.

  12. This is to show the level of unemployment in the country…may God help us all. Who will the choose now and who will they leave.

  13. The applicants are really much compare to the numbers requested….is it only police work that I available in the country?…we need to learn to be productive sometimes….

  14. That a nice developement, our country need a good security, man that can stand and defend the nation

  15. Its all good. Hope their sole aim is to protect the nation and not to join and increase the rate of crime

  16. That a nice developement, our country need a good security, man that can stand and defend the nation.. Up Naija

  17. This is not good at all, looks at the number of people seeking for police work, many of them may not be there to protect the citizrns but the money.

  18. We really need more security in this country,may God guide and protect them as they do the right thing for their country.

  19. This portrays the high level of unemployment in the country.I hope the honest and hardworking ones scale through and not those with “backbone”

  20. This is just an evidence of the gross level of unemployment in Nigeria. I hope this would be based on Merit and not Godfatherism.

  21. Lol, this is Nigeria, they will only chose those that has bribe them or their relatives, we all know how this works

  22. The difference between those needed for the job and the number of applicant indicates the level of unemployment in the country

  23. It’s a good development, more security personnel are needed in this country- it will create employment opportunity

  24. You know this country is full of corruption, even those who merit the recruitment might not be recruited

  25. During the 90s NPF used to to beg citizens to apply for police recruitment but now, reverse is the case. Bad economy

  26. This is to show u that this government has failed us …. the lack of employment is just to much and I pray we the youths vote wisely in the up coming election in 2019

  27. What a large number!
    Well, it’s good when you see men who are ready to risk their lives for others. I wish you guys stress free training

  28. No job in the land. See the amount of people applying for police jobs even if most of them hate police men

  29. If not the issue of unemployment. Will the police recruitment gotten to this in this country. It is well Sha. I believe with this the govt. Need to do something.

  30. That was a serious one . The huge number of applicant was as a result of increase in number of employment but that will reduce the level of employment in the country

  31. This is to show lack of unemployment in Nigeria, may God help us in this coming election to vote wisely..

  32. These days we need a committed and a responsible officer. This is a nice development and i wish them good luck.

  33. The rate of unemployment is quite high, more will still apply before the close of the portal… A lot of persons are jobless and with this new increment of Police salaries…more will line up

  34. You won’t blame anyone, people are out of job on a daily basis…before the portal will close…more applications will be submitted..I would have applied if not for height disqualification

  35. The reason for the high rate of applicants against the job available is not far fetched. Nigeria unemployed rate is high and I hope the govt can do something about it. Nice job on the transparency

  36. Having more police men in the country is good but should be protected with sophisticated gadgets ooo for security purposes

  37. The country need more than 10000 police men especially during this forth coming election.How many will be taken on merit?

  38. I hope this applicants will not be failed please government should really consider their demands lack of employment is too much in the country

  39. There’s nothing else to do everybody needs jobs so what do you expect,, please train them well oooo,,, enough of dead force men in nija

  40. This is the level of unemployment in the country. How can we have such numbers in days what will we have in weeks

  41. The rate of unemployment in this country is really high, the government should find a way to help resolve it

  42. Massive unemployment is all over the country that why such population could apply into police force

  43. You can see the high level of joblessness in this country Nigeria. God touch our leather to help fix this problem.

  44. I think the applicant population is just too high. Some forgot that in this country “who you follow come” matters a lot. Which I call (Godfatherism).

  45. Yes over populated. That’s will occur and I don’t blame them we all want to succeed on earth, a country that lack of employment opportunities to their citizens and they lucky see one, what do u think will happen

  46. If government employed them is a nice development it would help to reduce crime abeg BABA GOD help our youth ooo

  47. This is because there is no direct employment in Nigeria the only people that benefit in Nigeria employment are those in government, this is an opportunity for youth to get something doing

  48. so does it mean that everyone inNiger state want to become a police that makes them appear as the highest? Please access them welloooo.

  49. This is a very good development from Nigeria at least it’ll reduce crime rate as a lot of people will be gainfully employed

  50. That’s to show you how highly jobless Nigerians are. If you check further, majority of the applicants would be graduates.

  51. This thoroughly serious,104 thousand plus apply applied for sits of 10,000 post.I think they are going to use shuffle method to impose.

  52. So people are interested in the police force to this extent? I commend those that applied and I hope they are given admission.

  53. People needs job….i pray for them to be gainfully employed .most ppl dnt like police work…but, sombody must start from somwhere…

  54. That’s to show the the high level of joblessness in our country. I won’t be surprised if majority of them are graduates.

  55. Its a nice development from the police, but come to think of it 10,000 positions attracting 104, 000+ unemployment has finish this country

  56. That’s a massive turnover from Nigerians to the recruitment of the Nigerian Police Force, i guess the undenied interest of Nigerians is attributed to the alleged increase of the police force salary, wish them a free and fair recruit process, good luck to all participants

  57. Since everything goes to the north no need other region wasting their time applying Buhari will give it to his brothers.

  58. This is to show the level of high rate of unemployment into his country. If the country have provided basic amenities and jobs , I don’t think this huge amount of people will apply for such job. Well, in a way many will be employed and have a job to rely on and hope too.

  59. Ìf you hear them blabbing against police, you think they hate the job lol, n.a. dem they rush it, abeg where is the link I want join too kikiki

  60. This depicts the level of unemployment in the country
    The government needs to create a self sustaining business environment to save us from this peril

  61. So many of these people want to be recruited because of the level of unemployment rate in Nigeria. I pray they get the job without issues

  62. There is no job opportunity in Nigeria. I think obtaining a job will not solve our financial problems.

  63. That’s the rate of unemployment in the country beside 10,000 is too small I hope FG can look into creating of jobs next year its not encouraging

  64. Am very sure is because there is no job that makes the number of people that applied to be as much as this.On a norms,am sure many people wil not applies for police job.

  65. Evidence of unemployment. Government should accept them and give them proper training and care to reduce crime because if they are not cared for crime will increase.

  66. Imagine 100000+ applied for a post that will only be given to 10000
    The rate of unemployment in this country is really scary

  67. This is to show Federal government that there is no work in this country, proper screening should be done and the right people selected

  68. Evidence of unemployment in the nation.
    But it’s also sad that those that will be chosen had been chosen before the form is out. This is Nigeria.
    My brother had being collecting the form for more than four times now still not chosen.
    Everything is politicized

  69. And this is serious oo people don’t want any other job?they want to go and take the chance of the armies in Borno?

  70. This shows the state of unemployment in the country. Am sure 90% of them don’t like the job. They only applied for it because they have no job.

  71. Evidence of unemployment. Government should accept them and give them proper training and care to reduce crime because if they are not cared for crime will increase

  72. With the rate of unemployment in the country, and police pay has been increased, why won’t everyone jump in?

  73. That nice, good development that form are enough for people to apply, Boko Haram ur days are numbered but population many ooo.

  74. OMG!!! Just 10,000 needed while about 104,289 applied.. That’s huge gap.. Before all the top people in the country will finish taking their slot nothing will be left for common man.. They will go home jobless, police command made money already from their application fees.

  75. The way our Nigeria youths are reaching into Force’s those days is too alarming. But no one should doubt me nor of the Easterns will get the job… There Will all go to the North…..

  76. Turn up is impressive
    but they should please traidthose girls well we have very few experienced police officer in Nigeria and that’s painful

  77. Now because police salary was increased everyone wants to go for police,, even graduates dropped their certificate and went with ssce just because of the way the country is,, and people are saying nice development

  78. This is just showing the level of unemployment in the country and the so called government leaders are not doing anything tangible about it

  79. The rate of unemployment in the country is quite alarming. I pray the government will look into this to reduce the rate of criminality in the country. When people are without job, the rate of crime will increase.

  80. Why won’t there be such a great turn in such a short time where there is absolutely no job in the country.

  81. That nice, good development that form are enough for people to apply, Boko Haram ur days are numbered but population many ooo. Nice one who want to be let them go

  82. I think that’s the best now because if there’s no job I bet you there will be thieves around the corner always.

  83. That shows the level of unemployment in the country which is very pathetic, the Government should do something about the unemployment

  84. If recruitment for army comes out, thousands of youths will apply, if it’s FRSC thousands will fall out, etc. Now police thousands don show that only is to let one no the level of unemployment in dis country

  85. Lack of employment has turn Nigerian youth to something else, whereas, the official will employ a little. please employ many of them oo

  86. The rate of unemployment in Nigeria is really so high.Thats the reason for this and people are suffering

  87. wa o that is a nice performance by the police officials in charge of that. thanks and keep it up because those boys can achieve some thing now

  88. Imagine this kind of statistic, an opportunity of 10% capacity been apply for by 100% candidate, consider the figure to be left out, u will know the rate of dormant potentials in our society

  89. it a nice decision but plz they should not turn out to be anodes Boko Haram in Nigeria….. I wish us good luck

  90. this clearly show the rate of unemployment in nigeria.i wish the federal government will provide more alternative to tackle this issue.

  91. Evidence of unemployment oh lolz police force lounloun. Haaaa I’m asking myself am I mad. Of all the jobs na police I pray oh.

  92. What a wonderful way to engage the youth in something doing. I wish them success in the training exercise. Kudos to the Nigerian police.

  93. This is to show that the rate of unemployment in nigeria is very high but we thank the government for this but is a common sense that every one cannot become a police constable and to achieve that all round development the government should create a peaceful enviroment for foreign investors.

  94. This show that unemployment is on the high side in Nigeria and government has to do something about it by creating more job opportunities for youth

  95. In only 12 days, yet they number of applicants seem to be so alarming. It goes to show the level of unemployment in the country.

  96. This shows the level of unemployment in the country. The government needs to do more to create more employment opportunities.

  97. I pray they all have good intentions, like having the country at heart by signing in and not for selfish reasons

  98. We need more people to join the Nigeria police force. The numbers of the applicants are very low when compared to the rate of crime committed in the country daily. I hope government can come out with policies that will encourage more Nigerians to join the military and para military.

  99. Am sure they might not even recruit up 10000 waisting peoples precious time and some might even die which is very rampant and common

  100. It a good development we need more security in this country and it even good now that election is approaching

  101. A whole 104,289 applied for just 10,000 jobs ….Nigeria’should employmentioned level is very low….the federal government should try and help the situation

  102. Why not? When unemployment is the other of the day in the country. Graduates are out there looking for sustenance

  103. Nawaa oooo,why are Nigerians so desperate to join the police force,just under 12 days those amount of people applied.
