  81. Godfrey, theres no recruitment for this year 2017. The next recruitment is expected in 2019

  82. Fred, this is partly true,in that persons who join with a professional course are recruited as officers ( especially degree holders ). Hence they receive a salary higher than the ” ordinary ” recruit. Officers are also known to advance quickly in rank, over a shorter period of time.

  83. Moris, we are yet to receive any official notification about this, however, new developments shall be published as soon as possible.
