GOOD NEWS: EFCC recruitment: 11 criteria to join the commission {LIST}

On Tuesday, November 8, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for the first time announced that it was recruiting for 2016.


The commission in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren said the ongoing exercise is in line with due process and in conformity with federal character principle.

Uwujaren also said such clarification became necessary due to call and complaints from applicants who were disqualified from the recruitment exercise.

The commission also debunked claims that such applicants were disqualified out of nepotism or god-fatherism.

Uwujaren said: “This is far from the truth as criteria were set albinitio as qualification for enlistment into the EFCC.”

Uwujaren also said: “It is also pertinent to state that over 200, 000 applications were received; as against the advertised  750 (seven hundred and fifty) vacancies. The 750 Cadets are meticulously being screened.”

“The exercise which is still on-going for the Detective Inspectors (DI) and Detective Superintendents (DS) Cadres (the Detective Assistants, DI, Cadre has been concluded), is conducted transparently and every state is given equal representation.

“We also reiterate that there was no inappropriate conduct by any official during the exercise as being alleged. The physical fitness and medical tests were conducted by officers from the Nigerian Air Force Hospital who are well trained and adhere to the relevant code of medical practice.

“The media must therefore be wary not to become instruments of blackmail by applicants who failed the fitness test,” he said.
