The Senate and the Police Service Commission have been able to resolve their dispute in the engagement process of 10,000 personnel into the force.
The Chairman Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Senator Abu Ibrahim (APC, Katsina South) has said the suspension has been lifted and recruitment will continue soon.
Four weeks ago, the Senate had in a letter asked the PSC to suspend the exercise over alleged irregularity in the criteria adopted for the recruitment.
The Senate had suggested that the recruitment be done on Local government basis but the PSC insisted that it should be done per state.
Speaking on the matter, Senator Ibrahim said: "We have resolved the issue and the recruitment would be done on local government basis. Very soon the exercise will resume.
" Nine personnel would be recruited per local government area. The policemen would be used to form a unit for community policing in all the 774 local government areas of the country, "he said.
Ibrahim added that in the next three years, 30 personnel would be recruited per local government for the community policing programme.
