The Ministry of Interior has reaffirmed its commitment to collaborating with the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in the conduct of its forthcoming Computer-Based Aptitude Test for recruitment into the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) with a view to ensuring transparency, equity and justice in the process.
According to a press statement signed today by the Ministry’s Director, Press and Public Relations, Mohammed Manga, on behalf of the Minister, the collaboration is aimed at providing all eligible and qualified Nigerians who applied for various posts in the Services under the Ministry’s watch, equal opportunity to be employed into the Services, which is also in line with the present administration’s policy thrust of ensuring transparency in the conduct of government business.
It would be recalled that the Minister of Interior and Chairman, Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board (CDCFIB), Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola recently assured Nigerians that the Ministry will ensure transparency in the recruitment processes into the services. To this end, he said, the Ministry has concluded arrangements with the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board to conduct the aptitude test for eligible candidates into the Nigeria Immigration Service on the 7th of December 2020 while that of the NSCDC is expected to hold 8th December, 2020 in the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.

Accordingly, all candidates who applied for NIS are expected to visit the Website of the Service at immigrationrecruitment.org.ng while those who applied for NSCDC and subsequently updated their educational records are to visit cdfipb.careers to print individual letters of invitation.
