Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer, has expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of southerners applying for police positions.

One of the reasons, according to Mba, is that the Nigeria Police Force has extended the deadline for online registration for the ongoing 2021 police constable recruitment to Saturday, January 22, 2022.
Mba said the extension was needed “to ensure equal opportunity and even spread of applications, particularly from states in the South-East, South-South geopolitical zones, and Lagos State,” according to a statement released on Wednesday.
He claimed that the extension would allow the southern states to meet their respective quota requirements.
According to Mba, only 1,404 applications (less than 2% of total applications) were received from the five states in the South East out of the 81,005 applications received nationwide as of January 7, 2022.
Only 261 people applied from Lagos State, according to MBA, and only 158 people applied from Anambra.
As a result, the Nigeria Police Force has appealed to states, local governments, religious bodies, and other interest groups in the South-South, South-East, and Lagos States to mobilize and encourage their citizens and wards to join the Nigeria Police Force.
“Interested applicants are encouraged to register on the NPF recruitment portal before the new deadline expires,” he said, noting that the recruitment process is completely free.
