The collaboration of the Ministry of Interior of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for the conducting of the recruitment exercise for the Immigration Service and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) jobs is a success.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has conducted the recruitment examination who saw about 190,000 candidates who applied for the Immigration Service and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) jobs.
The computer based examination (CBT) took place across 126 centres at the same time across the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
According to the Secretary of the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board, Yakmut Saleh, speaking on Monday, JAMB was tapped to conduct the examination to ensure transparency and avoid the rancor and confusion that trailed a similar exercise a few years ago.
In his words, “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,” he said.
Number of Candidates for NSCDC and Immigration Service Recruitment Exam
According to him, about 190,000 candidates wrote the examination across the nation, out of which 113,000 are for Nigerian Security and Civil Defence jobs and 78,000 candidates for Immigration Service jobs. The examination was 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 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1p.m.”
According to the secretary of the board, despite the large number of applicants, only 9,460 jobs are up for grabs by successful candidates.
He said the results from the JAMB recruitment exam would be released immediately after the exercise.
“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 15th December, IPP and capturing will commence and they will now go for six months training for specialisation,” he said.
“In both organisations, we are recruiting 9,460. 5,000 positions for NSCDC and 4,460 for immigration service,” Mr Yakmut said.
