The civil defense, correctional, fire, and immigration services board has approved the commencement of the 2019/2020 recruitment exercise into the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).
Via its Twitter handle on Monday, May 10, the NIS announced that only 6,105 of the 45,323 candidates that sat for the Computer Based Test (CBT) were shortlisted to take part in the final screening of credentials and physical fitness.
The service also noted that the successful candidates will be invited for the screening via text and emails on Monday, May 10, 2021.
The category of applicants has been directed to check for the names and screening details such as examination centres and guidelines for the exercise on the official website of the NIS: www.immigrationrecruitment.gov.ng.
Applicants are to print out their invitation slips which will be used to admit them into the screening venue on Monday, May 24.
Applicants are also advised to tender any complaints and report to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Crimes Commission (ICPC) or the NIS website.
Meanwhile, the NIS came under criticism after it shared a post advising Nigerians to "think deeply" before accepting offers to relocate abroad for a better life.
The short message which was shared on the agency's Twitter handle on Saturday, April 3, read:
“Hey Guys, you may need to think deeply over that bogus offer of a better life abroad. You may end up in modern-day slavery. Not all that glitters is gold."
It appeared the NIS was trying to caution Nigerians on some of the dangers associated with accepting bogus offers of a better life abroad, such as human trafficking.
