In a statement, Ikechukwu Ani, the spokesperson for the PSC, also disclosed that a significant portion of the applicants, numbering 84,606, had to be rejected due to exceeding the age limit. Prospective candidates are expected to fall within the age bracket of 18 to 25 years to be eligible for consideration.

The data highlights disparities in application numbers among various states across Nigeria. Kaduna State leads the pack with an impressive 40,272 applications, solidifying its position as the state with the highest number of aspirants.

Adamawa State closely trails Kaduna, securing the second spot with 36,398 applications, while Borno State occupies the third position with 32,048 applicants.
