I am but your herald boy in the art of the pen.. An eccentric Environmental Biologist smouldered in the glorious epiphany of online journalism. If you ever find my article unduly insipid, sue me and i’ll refund you...


  1. Thanks…. So cadet inspector and ASP candidate is expected to receive any mail now i.e email sent is only for those that applied as specialist??

  2. Hmmmmmmm congratulations @Chris am just confused on specialist stuff stated here.. I applied for cadet inspector but have not received any mail yet

  3. I applied for cadet ASP and i have gotten the mail, i got it this morning, a friend of mine got his last night. i am sure the mail is for everybody who participated in the last recruitment exercise, keep calm, you will soon get yours.

  4. Pls,d mail is it for both general nd special duty applicant?Bcus I just received mine while applied for general duty…Beliv d mail is not in error.Anybody wt useful infor inrefernce to d invitations(npf).

  5. The dates are in variance, some say 22 of August while others say 24. What you have to do is to honour the specific date written on the mail sent to you… Its a nationwide test but the states may decide to pick dates as it suit them. Thanks

  6. The most important thing to take note of is the date written on the mail sent to you…. Don’t be carried away by other people’s complain… The mail said “You are to come to the venue with a printed copy of this letter without failure, as this admits you into the Examination/Screening Halls.” so if you got 22 then go on 22 and those who saw 24 should should do the same… Because it is the printed letter that will guaranty you a place in the screening hall.

    1. Just spoke with a Commissioner whom my bro directed me to, he asked me authoritatively, did apply for Specialist or ASP? I answered ASP, again, did u receive the email? Yes sir. He said pls endeavors to come on the given date, which simply means, people gas been screened out for ASP.
