Over 190,000 applicants are jostling for 9,460 job slots at the Nigeria Immigration Service and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The candidates sat for the examination today in 126 centres across nationwide, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The examination, which was computer-based, was conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

Speaking with journalists after monitoring the exercise, Secretary of the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board, Yakmut Saleh, expressed delight over the seamless conduct of the recruitment exam by JAMB.

He said the computer-based test was of JAMB was adopted to ensure transparency and avoid rancour and confusion that trailed a similar exercise in 2014.

He said: “All over the country we have almost 190,000 candidates out of which 113,000 are Civil Defence, and for Immigration, we have 78,000 candidates across 126 centres in Nigeria. The examination is broken into three phases; we have the one for graduates and HND, NCE and OND and the third one for secondary school (leavers).

“The batches (for the exam) are in three sessions to four sessions based on the number of candidates per centre. We have 9:00am, 11:00am and 1:00pm. This is just one component of the exercise, after this, we go into physical and medical as well as psychometric exercise.

“We need to go through a transparent method of a recruitment exercise and it has to start from the word go. We are into partnership with JAMB to ensure that every candidate is given a fair opportunity to prove that he has the merit and requirement that we need.

“The result is immediate but we are going to go into the second phase, immediately we get the results we will shortlist for physical and medical checkups before 15 December (2020) IPP and capturing will commence, and they will now go for six months training for specialisation.

“In both organisations we are recruiting 9,460. 5,000 for civil defence and 4,460 for immigration.”
