The Nigeria Customs Service is set to release the names of successful candidates for final screening in the ongoing recruitment.
In a statement, the agency said that the exercise had to be suspended after the aptitude test following the outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic.
Regrettably, the delay caused anxiety for the applicants, parents/guardians and indeed some members of the public who even went into overdrive with various allegations that tended to question the integrity of the exercise.
In a statement by the Customs Public Relation Officer, Mr. Joseph Atta, a Deputy Comptroller of Customs said that recruitment into Nigeria Customs Service is and will remain strictly based on merit and principle of Federal Character, with every Local Government of the federation appropriately represented. Since the Service does not know when the ravaging covid-19 will end, Management has decided to forge ahead with the exercise while strictly adhering to the protocols.
Already a total of 3,500 successful candidates have been shortlisted and will be published in three (3) national dailies ie Sun, Daily Trust and Nation newspapers on Friday 12th February 2021.
In the interest of safety, screening will be held on zonal bases with the dates staggered according to grade levels and time allotted to states. The whole idea is to get the recruitment exercise concluded without exposing the candidate to unnecessary risks. Only shortlisted candidates should go to the screening venue.
NCS therefore urges all candidates who will be coming for this screening to study the instructions and abide strictly to avoid instant disqualification and immediate eviction from the venue.
