ABUJA – The Minister of Interior, Abba Moro has denied the rumour that the ministry has instructed applicants to write the Nigeria Immigrations Service (NIS) aptitude test scheduled for tomorrow at their various states of origin.
Addressing Journalists in Abuja, the minister said clarification had become neccessary because of distortions and misinformation on the social media.
He said the recruitment exercise will take place on Saturday and it would be conducted by the Ministry of Interior and the Nigerian Immigration Service.
He said, “for the avoidance of doubt, we started this process some months back and having literally overcome some of the initial obstacles, the aptitude test for the enlistment of men to the NIS will take place on Saturday in various centres across the country and the FCT”.
“It is not the instruction of the ministry of interior that everybody should go to his or her various state of origin to write the examination, this will negate our initial decision to go online to conduct this exercise, to avoid the risk of long transportation and travel and to avoid a risk of spending too much into enlistment into the service.”
