The Nigeria Customs Service on Monday said it has shortlisted a total of 162,399 for aptitude test out of the 828,333 candidates that applied for its 2019 recruitment.

Customs National Public Relations Officer, Joseph Attah, in a statement, said in line with the NCS earlier stated guidelines, those shortlisted are being notified via their e-mail and telephone.

According to him, all those notified will do their aptitude tests at a date and centre indicated in their respective notification slips, which they are expected to print from their e-mail account. 

He quoted the Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali, as giving assurances of his determination to preside over a recruitment process that will be credible, transparent and smooth despite the “disturbing attempts by internet fraudsters to hack and discredit the recruitment process”. 

He reiterated that the Customs recruitment process requires no monetary payment, hence any such request from any quarter should be regarded as fraudulent and ignored.

“All short-listed candidates coming to the centres are to come along with the notification slips and identity card. They are to be in their best behaviors and comply with all instructions during the aptitude tests as doing the contrary could lead to instant disqualification,” he said in the statement.
