The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) will today release the names of successful candidates for final screening in its ongoing recruitment exercise.

Customs Public Relations Officer, Joseph Attah, said in a statement yesterday that the recruitment exercise was suspended following the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic in 2020, after aptitude tests were conducted.

Attah expressed regret over the delay, which he said caused anxiety for the applicants, parents, guardians and members of the public who “even went into overdrive with various allegations that tended to question the integrity of the exercise”.

“For the avoidance of doubt, recruitment into Nigeria Customs Service is and will remain strictly based on merit and principle of Federal Character, with every Local Government of the federation appropriately represented.

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

“Already a total of 3,500 successful candidates have been shortlisted and will be published in three national dailies on Friday 12th February 2021.”

NCS therefore urges all candidates who will be coming for this screening to study the instructions and abide strictly to avoid instant disqualification and immediate eviction from the venue,” the statement said.
