The general public will recall that the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) commenced a recruitment process in early 2020. For a recruitment approval for less than 200 officers, the Commission received almost 400,000 applications from Nigerians. Subsequent to COVID 19 pandemic, the government suspended the process.
In mid-2021, the Commission obtained approval to complete the process. In order to give every applicant a fair chance and at the same time get the best, ICPC decided to apply online tests to prune down the number of applicants, using international best practices.

Through the service of a recruitment consultant, the Commission has so far conducted a number of rounds of online tests, including some repeat tests to accommodate numerous complaints of non-receipt of notification of tests emails, spam of notification emails, complaints of timing out of test portal, non-submission of fully completed or half-completed tests, loss of access to a registered email address of applicants, forgotten passwords, and so on. Applicants with further complaints are advised to forward them to [email protected]
The Commission at extra cost decided to notify applicants by SMS of the dates of tests and advisory that they should check their mails and spam folders for the test email.
Following this step, only successful applicants including those with specialized skills that are shortlisted will be further invited for follow-up tests, which may be virtual or physical with effect from September 2021.
The pruning down process will continue until the Commission arrives at a manageable number of qualified applicants that may be further processed by one on one interviews, certificate verification, health certification, character profiling, and other assessments befitting of a law enforcement agency.
