Customs warns public about fake recruitment exercise

The Nigeria Customs Service has warned the general public about a purported on-going recruitment exercise in the Service, saying that no recruitment exercise is being conducted now besides the ones conducted in 2009 and 2011.

This was contained in a statement signed by the management and posted on its website on Friday.


The statement warned that any purported sale of form, invitation for interview and list of recruited candidates being seen anywhere is fake and did not emanate from the Service.

“Recruitment process into the Service starts with advertisement of vacancies in print and electronic media, as well as the Service website, this is followed by examination/interview training of successful candidates and deployment”


“The process recognizes only the Federal Character principle of geographical spread. The Nigeria Customs Service is an equal opportunity employer that recruits candidates irrespective of gender, religion or tribe. Interested candidates are therefore advised to avoid being duped and wait until when the Service puts up vacancy advertisement through appropriate media,”

“The general public is strongly advised to be suspicious of any offer of Customs related job placement, auction sales and contract awards especially through the internet and report such offers to the nearest Customs formation,”
