In what might sound as a heartbreaking news to thousands of unemployed Nigerians who are frantically applying for the recently-advertised vacancies in the Nigeria Immigration Service NIS, the federal government has declared that only 1, 112 vacancies currently exist in the service.
There were two aborted Immigration recruitments that were done. The first one led to fatality and casualties. The second one was dispersed following discovery of so many abnormalities in which 2, 000 of them were sent home.
Experts wrote a memo to Mr President that they should recall those candidates, 2000 of them, so that they can reassess them and the President graciously approved that and they advertised in papers and about 1,500 or so reported and out of this number 888 qualified for that recruitment.
Now the balance of 1, 112 is what experts are working on; that is the reason of the recent advertisement by the Nigerian Immigration Service to recruit that balance of 1,112.
Vanguard checks revealed that no fewer than 80, 000 Nigerians have since applied for the jobs, with many others still unable to access the portal due to technical hitches from its back-end.
