The recruitment of police 10,000 jobs has ran into a hitch, following a sharp disagreement over the criteria to be adopted in picking successful candidates who scaled the last phase of the exercise.
The police force want local government to be the basis of picking the successful candidates, while the police service commission said it should be based on the equality of states.
Chairman of the senate police affairs committee, Abu Ibrahim, who made this known, said president Buhari had intervened in the matter, and the dispute would be resolved latest by next week.
Ibrahim said his committee however, disagreed with the position of both the police and the police service commission on the criteria to be adopted in sharing the 10,000 police jobs among the 36 states.
The senator said his committee had canvassed that the post for the rank and file should be based on Local Government areas, while the officer cadre should be based on the equality of states.
