February 10, 2015 12:11 am

The Federal Government has concluded arrangements to conduct fresh
recruitment of applicant into the Nigerian Immigration Service, almost a year after the previous scam that led to the
loss of  lives, with many others injured.

Public Relations
Officer of the Nigerian Immigration, Chukwuemeka Obuah, confirmed this after advertorials were placed in
major media outlets for that purpose.

Obuah noted: “The Presidential Committee To Assist In Immigration
Recruitment on Monday  February 9, 2015 placed advertorial in some
national dailies requesting applications from suitable Nigerians for
enlistment into the Immigration Service starting from  9th
February 2015 to 22nd March, 2015. the application is free and must
be done online”.

The stampede that occurred during the poorly planned NIS aptitude test
on Saturday, March 15,2014, had led  to the death of over 20 applicants
with several others injured.
Reports also revealed that there were only 4, 000 vacancies that were
to be filled in NIS, while the Ministry of Interior approved the sale of
application scratch cards to over 520, 000 citizens, amounting to over
$3, 000,000 in revenue to the ministry, and yet it failed to provide
adequate provision for the conduct of standard recruitment aptitude
At the wake of the Scam and subsequent Deaths, the presidency promised
to sack Minister of Interior Abba Moro but failed to do so as the
minister remains in charge.
