Scores of successful applicants into the Nigeria Police Force were unable to check their names on the police website on Thursday as the page was not accessible.
Efforts to check the list of successful candidates on the Police Service Commission website (www.psc.gov.ng) was abortive as it simply said, “This account has been suspended. Contact your hosting provider for more information.”
In the same vein, the Nigeria Police Force website, (www.npf.gov.ng) is experiencing the same error as attempts to access the 2016 recruitment page comes up with an error message.
Speaking on the matter, the PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, revealed that the commission was trying to rectify the problem, adding that the firm in charge of the website, Galaxy Backbone Plc was working on it.
“The website has been having some issues which we rectified, but the latest hitch was on account of the huge number of people trying to access it. Engineers from Galaxy Backbone are working on it, I am sure it would be up any moment from now,” he said.
The names of about 10,000 successful applicants made up of 500 Cadet Assistant Superintendents of Police, 500 Cadet Inspectors, 7,500 Constables and 1,500 specialists are expected to be uploaded on the PSC and police websites.
