The Ministry of Interior is partnering with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in the recruitment of personnel for the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

JAMB will assist the ministry to conduct Computer-Based Aptitude Test (CBAT) for shortlisted applicants.

The Director of Press and Public Relations in the ministry, Mŕ Mohammed Manga, stated in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja that the aim was to ensure transparency, equity and justice in the recruitment exercise.

Manga explained that the partnership was aimed at providing all eligible and qualified Nigerians who applied for various posts in the two organisations a level playing ground.

“This is also in line with the present administration’s policy thrust of ensuring transparency in the conduct of government businesses,’’ he said.

He noted that the Interior Minister, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, recently assured Nigerians that the ministry would ensure transparency in the recruitment exercise.

“To this end, the ministry has concluded arrangements with the JAMB to conduct the aptitude test for eligible candidates into the NIS on Dec. 7.

“That of the NSCDC is expected to hold on Dec. 8 in the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), he said.

According to Manga, the ministry has also worked out modalities to enable qualified candidates to access the notification for the aptitude tests for CBAT from 6 p.m. on Dec. 1 through their e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
