The attention of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission has been drawn to an advertisement regarding a purported recruitment exercise by the Commission. The notice in the media is in respect of the 2020 recruitment exercise which was suspended due to the COVID-19 challenges.
For the avoidance of doubt, ICPC wishes to state categorically that it is not currently conducting a fresh recruitment exercise. Before the suspension of the exercise in 2020, the Commission had received over 500,000 applications and shortlisted those that met preliminary criteria. Further processing is in view.
The Commission hopes to resume the exercise once it obtains clearance from appropriate quarters. There is therefore no new recruitment exercise. Submission of applications has closed and no new applications is being entertained.
The general public is therefore warned to be wary of any notice of recruitment by ICPC.
