Mr Kazeem, however, did not disclose the number of new personnel to be recruited under the exercise.

The exercise, according to him, will be conducted into the Officer, Marshal Inspectorate (MI) and Road Marshal Assistant (RMA) cadres.

“Applicants for the Officer cadre are expected to possess a first degree from recognised institutions, NYSC Discharge Certificate, and must not be more than 30 years of age.

“For the Marshal Inspectorate cadre, there are three subcategories namely, Marshal Inspector I (MI-I), Marshal Inspector II (MI-II), and Marshal Inspector III (MI-III).

“The requirements for MI-I are Higher National Diploma from recognised Institutions, NYSC discharge certificates, registered nurse and midwife, and must equally not be more than 30 years of age.

“For MI-III, applicants must possess National Diploma (ND), Community Health Extension Workers Certificate (CHEW), and must equally not be more than 28 years of age,” he said.

Kazeem also said that application into the category of RMAII required a minimum of five credits in SSCE/GCE/NECO/NABTEB and must include Mathematics and English Language.

He also said applicants for RMAIII must possess a minimum of three credits in SSCE/GCE/NECO/NABTEB, and must not be above 27 years of age.
