Recruitment : Customs to release names of candidates for final screening
* Recruitment requires NO monetary payment -Says DC Attah
(Report by Udeme Clement):
Facts emerged that the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), is set to release names of successful candidates for final screening in the on-going recruitment exercise.
The Customs National Publc Relations Officer, DC Joseph Attah, broke the news on behalf of the Comptroller-General of Customs, CGC Hameed Ali.
He informed, “A total of 3,500 successful candidates have been shortlisted and will be published in three national dailies like The Sun, Daily Trust and Nation newspapers on Friday, February 12, 2021.
“For safety reasons, screening will be held on zonal bases with the dates staggered according to grade levels and time allotted to states.
“The whole idea is to get the recruitment exercise concluded without exposing the candidates to unnecessary risks.”
He said, “Only shortlisted candidates should go to the screening venue. All candidates coming for this screening should study the instructions and abide strictly to avoid instant disqualification and immediate eviction from the venue.”
“The Service is calling on the public to be mindful of fraudsters, who will see the invitation for screening as another opportunity to distort and misinform desperate job seekers.
“Any source other than the Service known platforms vis-à-vis www.customs.gov.ng, www.facebook.com/customsng, TV and Radio. Especially those funny sources that will eventually request payment of money should be ignored.
“NCS recruitment process requires NO monetary payment of any kind”
His words, “Recall that following the outbreak of covid-19 in early 2020, NCS recruitment exercise had to be suspended after the aptitude test.
“Regrettably, the delay caused anxiety for the applicants, parents/guardians and indeed some members of the public, who even went into overdrive with various allegations tended to question the integrity of the exercise”.
He stressed, “For the avoidance of doubt, recruitment into the Service is strictly on merit and principle of Federal Character, with every Local Government of the federation appropriately represented.
“Since the Service does not know when the ravaging covid-19 will end, Management has decided to forge ahead with the exercise while strictly adhering to the protocols.
“While wishing all the candidates success, we appreciate the patient wait as a result of the covid-19 disruption.”
