Out of nearly 1.4 million people who applied for the paramilitary post, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has announced the final step of its 2019 recruitment process, shortlisting 6,500 candidates for final screening.

Dr Ahmed Abubakar Audi, the Corps' Commandant General, announced this at a news conference held at the Corps Headquarters in Abuja on Friday.

Audi, who was flanked by Mrs Aisha Rufai, Secretary and Director of the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Correctional Services Board, expressed sadness that the exercise, which began in 2019, was stalled due to a number of factors, including the COVID-19  epidemic.

“When the recruitment started, the number of those who applied was over 1.4 million when the portal was opened,” the CG stated of the processes that led to the final tally of shortlisted candidates.

Audi said
"Out of that, we got 670,000 who were invited to upload in the portal. Out of that, 200, 000 really responded and out of this, 53, 116 were selected to write the Computer Based Test CBT examination. Out of this, 6, 500 candidates were shortlisted for the final screening out of which 5, 000 will be selected and employed".

“We, therefore, wish to implore all candidates who sat for the CBT, that is 6,500 who have been invited for the physical screening that the final screening of credentials and physical fitness test will be via SMS from 2nd to 25th of August 2021. Applicants are invited to check the application portal from July 20 2021 for their names, screening location, guidelines and to print out their recruitment slip without which they won’t be allowed for the screening”.

According to him, the drill will take place at six different locations throughout the six geopolitical zones. The NSCDC Zonal Command Headquarters in Kaduna, Games Village in Bauchi, Federal University Lafia in Nasarawa State, NSCDC Training School in Oji River, Enugu State, Civil Defence College of Security Management in Abeokuta, and NABTEB in Benin, Edo State were among the institutions he mentioned.

He went on to say that the Corps worked closely with the Federal Character Commission FCC to ensure that the federal character guidelines were followed to the letter.

Mrs Rufai, on her part, referenced Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior and Chairman of the Board, as saying that the entire procedure was free.

Anybody found trying to induce some financial gratification will be dealt with and that only invited candidates should go to the centres”, she stated.
