August 15 17:57 2016

The Federal Government has announced plans to re-screen 2,000
recruits of the Nigeria Immigration Service NIS.

The recruits, whose re-screening would commence on August 29, 2016  were “dispersed” after being trained and issued
employment letters in February 2015.

Announcing this in a statement issued Monday in
Abuja, spokesman of the NIS, Ekpedeme King said the
decision was reached in the aftermath of an emergency
meeting of the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration, and
Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB) on the 11th of August
2016.

The service however listed several guidelines for the
screening of the applicants.
Apart from the necessary security clearance, they
would also undergo a drug-test, certificate verification
as well as the implementation of CDFIPB policy on “Age
on Rank”.

“The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) wishes to
inform the 2000 applicants for employment into the
Service who were irregularly issued letters of
employment in February, 2015 that the Federal
Government has approved the review of the case.

“Following an emergency meeting of the Civil Defence,
Fire, Immigration, and Prisons Services Board (CDFIPB)
on the 11th of August 2016, the following guidelines
were issued for the screening of the applicants:

“Consequent on the above, applicants whose names
are listed in the NIS website: www.immigration.gov.ng
are requested to report to the NIS Headquarters Abuja
with their academic certificates, birth certificate,
previous employment records (if any), indigene
certificates (originals and photocopies), two passport
photographs, and in batches according to the time-
table”.

By the schedule, Assistant Superintendent of
Immigration II, ASI2 (CONPASS 08) from all the states
between Abia and Jigawa in alphabetical order would
take their turn on August 29 while those that fall
between Kaduna and Zamfara states would have theirs
on August 30.

For Assistant Inspectors of Immigration, AII (CONPASS
06) those from Abia to Jigawa state would sit for the
screening on August 31 while those from Kaduna to
Zamfara would have theirs on September 1.

For Immigration Assistants IA1 – IA3 (CONPASS 3,4,5),
those from Abia to Edo states would be screened on
September 2, Ekiti to Kwara, September 3 and Lagos to
Zamfara, September 4.

“The general public should please note that the exercise
is not a call for fresh recruitment. Therefore, no
application for recruitment should be forwarded to the
NIS”, the service warned.
