President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday warned that his administration will not tolerate any irregularities or extortion of money from applicants in the forthcoming recruitment into the Police.

The President gave the warning at a meeting with officials of the Ministry of Police Affairs and the Police Service Commission in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He frowned at the situation where applicants had to offer bribes before being accepted into the police in the past, stressing that it was totally unacceptable.

The President told the officials that those in charge of recruitment and training in the police must be above board and eschew every form of extortion and underhand dealing.

“You must ensure that the recruitment process is transparent. Those who will conduct the recruitment must be above board.

“It should not be heard that they received gratification or extorted money from those who want to enlist in the police’’, he further cautioned.
