The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has debunked claims that the service has employed some of those who applied for the recruitment exercise, stating that the exercise is still ongoing and that training just began and as such can’t employ anyone until the exercise is over.
He said the list of successful candidates in its latest recruitment exercise was compiled based on merit and the principle of Federal Character and will be followed to the end of the exercise.
Some applicants that applied for recruitment into the Nigeria Customs had taken to social media to berate the recruitment process that began in 2019, alleging that the service already selected the preferred candidates.
Some of the applicants that commented on the official twitter handle of the service, @CustomsNG, had lamented that Customs already concluded the screening and have employed those they intend to employ.
But reacting to the allegations the National Public Relations Officer of the Service; Mr Joseph Attah debunked the claims, describing it as beer parlour gist, while informing our correspondent that the exercise is ongoing after which the final list will be released.
“The exercise is on-going, no one has been employed, that’s beer parlour gist; it is after the exercise that the final list will be released, so no one has been employed. The list of successful candidates in the recruitment exercise was compiled based on merit and the principle of Federal Character, and will be followed to the end of the exercise”, he assured.
