CUSTOMS RECRUITMENT: Fresh Updates On Screening Venue For S’East, S’South Candidates


Following the on going renovation of Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri, the venue for the final screening of shortlisted candidates from South-East/South-South have been scheduled to HERO’S SQUARE, NEW OWERRI.

This information was contained in a statement issued signed by the Spokesperson Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Deputy Comptroller Joseph Attah.

Recall that the NCS recently released the names of the 3,500 candidates that qualified for the final screening in three national newspapers, Daily Sun, Daily Trust, and The Nation.

Though the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the NCS recruitment exercise was suspended after the aptitude test. The delay caused anxiety for applicants, parents/guardians and members of the public some of whom made allegations that questioned the integrity of the exercise.

The Customs management, however, assured anxious Nigerians that the recruitment will not only be transparent but strictly based on merit and in tandem with the Federal Character principle, where every Local Government Area will be appropriately represented.

‘Since the Service does not know when the ravaging COVID-19 pestilence will end, the management has decided to forge ahead with the exercise while strictly adhering to the protocols,’ Attah stated.

The statement reads in part: “All shortlisted candidates from the zone are to note the change and proceed to Hero’s Square, New Owerri on the already scheduled dates and time for the screening please.”
