Cry for help : ‘1.4 million Nigerians’ applied for 5,000 Civil Defence jobs

Posted by on January 23, 2020>



Over 1.4 million Nigerians scrambled for 5,000 job openings advertised by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), marking yet another testament to Nigeria’s acute unemployment.

Federal officials working on the recruitment process told Premium Times this week that 1, 477, 042 million applications were received through the Civil Defence’s website at the close of submission on September 7, 2019. The online portal for 2020 recruitment opened on August 9, 2019, running for just a month.

Of the 1.4 million applicants, thousands would be selected to take part in the next stage of the recruitment process, Premium Times learnt from officials who spoke under anonymity because the civil service rules prevent them from discussing official activities.

Those shortlisted would then face a series of written examinations to be conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). The Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB), a federal agency coordinating the recruitment, has already written to JAMB seeking the examination body’s cooperation in setting guidelines for the upcoming computer-based tests.

As part of the requirement for the job that pays above the N30,000 national minimum wage, thousands of shortlisted applicants would take questions similar to those set for candidates seeking admission into tertiary institutions in the country.

It was the first time that JAMB would be asked to set written examinations for candidates seeking Civil Defence jobs.
