“Of the 113,105 candidates who were shortlisted, 53,116 took the CBAT in December 2020 across the country, and 6,500 were shortlisted for further screening,” he said.

The recruitment was delayed until 2022, according to the commandant general, due to COVID-19 and the need for thorough vetting of candidates.

“Recruitment is a process, and vetting about 1,000,000 people is difficult because vetting is very important and takes a long time,” he said.

Audi went on to say that vetting was done on three levels: environmental, institutional, and family.
