The federal government has reviewed its guidelines for recruitment into the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional and Immigration Services, saying henceforth 35 per cent of recruitment into the services would be allocated to women. 
The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, disclosed this at the end of the meeting of the Board of the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional and Immigration Services in Abuja on Friday, January 19.
He said the 35 per cent allocation of slots to women was in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.
Tunji-Ojo, who spoke through the Secretary of the Board, Ja’afaru Ahmed, said the ongoing recruitment into the Federal Fire Service would be based on the new guidelines which would focus largely on professionalism, gender mainstreaming and Federal Character principles.
Tunji-Ojo said: “The federal government through the Board has approved the review of the guidelines for recruitment into, and promotion in all the four Services under the Ministry of Interior.
“The development also comes with the modernisation of the operations of the Nigeria Immigration Service. The modernisation is going to be all-encompassing, training, recruitment, promotion, professionalism and capacity building and deployment of cutting-edge technologies.“
He warned Nigerians interested in applying not to patronise scammers, saying that the government is already aware of some scammers who are asking for money for recruitment into the Fire Service.
“This is to appeal to Nigerians not to patronise scammers. Anybody asking you to pay money to be recruited into any of the agencies is a scammer. We are aware of their activities and we will go after them.”
