After due consultations with critical stakeholders, especially the NCDC, and in consideration of the safety of cadets who are presently in         full session, Police Academy community and indeed prospective candidates, the Regular Course Eight (RC8) selection exercise is                     hereby postponed.

The Commandant, Nigeria Police Academy, AIG Zanna M. Ibrahim, mni therefore wishes to inform all shortlisted candidates and the General Public that the date for the final selection exercise into the 8th Regular Course of the Academy earlier slated to commence on 9th January 2021 has been postponed due to the outbreak of the second wave of COVID – 19 pandemic. As a result of the need to keep both the candidates and Police Academy community safe, the need to suspend the exercise needs no further emphasis.

Shortlisted candidates should note that the list remains unaltered and warns the public to be wary of opportunists and scammers who may  want to work on the desperate tendencies of applicants to lure them into parting with their hard earned money under guise of supplementary list or securing admission for them. He advised shortlisted candidates to stay safe as they enjoy the holidays while awaiting a new date as  soon as the COVID- 19 situation improves.

The Commandant regrets any inconvenience that the postponement might have caused but reassures all that it is for the general good and safety of all that the date be shifted as he remains resolute to ensuring merit and wishes all a happy and prosperous new year.
