The Ministry of Interior is collaborating with the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in the conduct of its forthcoming Computer-Based Aptitude Test for recruitment into the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
Director of press and public relations in the ministry, Mohammed Manga, said the collaboration is with a view to ensuring transparency, equity and justice in the recruitment process.
He added that the collaboration would further give the youths equal opportunity to be employed into the Services, which “is also in line with the present administration’s policy thrust of ensuring transparency in the conduct of government business.”
It would be recalled that the Minister of Interior and Chairman, Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board (CDCFIB), Rauf Aregbesola, recently assured Nigerians that the Ministry would ensure transparency in the recruitment processes into the services.
Manga said the aptitude test for eligible candidates into the NIS will hold on the 7th of December 2020 while that of the NSCDC is expected to hold 8th December, 2020 in the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
According to him, the ministry has also worked out modalities to enable qualified candidates access the notification for the aptitude tests for CBAT from 6pm on 1st December, 2020 through their e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
“All candidates, who applied for NIS are expected to visit the website of the Service at https://immigrationrecruitment.org.ng while those who applied for NSCDC and subsequently updated their educational records are to visit https://cdfipb.careers to print individual letters of invitation,” the statement discussed.
