FG reviews guidelines for recruitment into Immigration, Civil Defense, other services

The Federal Government has declared the revision of recruitment guidelines for the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional, and Immigration Services.

The government says going forward, 35 percent of the recruitment slots for these services will be allocated to women.

Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior made this announcement at the conclusion of the meeting of the Board of the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional, and Immigration Services held in Abuja on Friday.

The Minister said the 35 percent allocation of slots to women was in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.

Tunji-Ojo, represented by the Board’s Secretary, Ja’afaru Ahmed, addressed the briefing alongside key figures, including the Comptroller-General of Immigration, Caroline Wura-Ola Adepoju, the Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Dr. Ahmed Audi, the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS), Haliru Nababa, and the Commandant-General of the Federal Fire Service, FFS, Abdulgafar Jaji.

According to him, the ongoing recruitment process for the Federal Fire Service will adhere to the newly established guidelines, placing significant emphasis on professionalism, gender mainstreaming, and adherence to Federal Character principles.

He said: “The Federal Government through the Board has approved the review of the guidelines for recruitment into, and promotion in all the four Services under the Ministry of Interior.

“The development also comes with modernisation of the operations of the Nigeria Immigration Service. The modernisation is going to be all encompassing: training, recruitment, promotion, professionalism and capacity building and deployment of cutting-edge technologies.”

Tunji-Ojo announced that the Services would in due course release timelines for recruitment into all the services. He warned Nigerians interested in applying not to patronise scammers, saying that government is already aware of some scammers who are asking for money for recruitment into the Fire Service.

Mrs Adepoju, the Comptroller-General said the Service would emphasise on capacity building, specialisation along professional lines to ensure that promotion is not a reward for redundancy.
