The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on Monday said it has shortlisted 162,399 applicants for its aptitude test among the 828,333 that applied for various positions in 2019.
Recall that (NCS) on April 2019 began recruitment for 3,200 officers and men.
Joseph Attah, spokesperson of (NCS) in a statement on Monday said the shortlisted applicants have been notified through their e-mail addresses and telephone numbers.
“Following vacancies advertisement by the Nigeria Customs Service last year and the disturbing attempts by internet fraudsters to hack and discredit the recruitment process.
“The Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) has expressed dismay over the criminal activities of these elements and gave assurances of his determination to preside over a recruitment process that will be credible, transparent and smooth from the beginning to the end,” the statement said.
“Consequently, all those notified will do their aptitude tests at a date and centre indicated in their respective notification slips.
“For the avoidance of doubt, NCS recruitment process requires NO monetary payment, hence any such request from any quarter should be regarded as fraudulent and ignored,” it announced.
