The Federal Government opened the portal for recruitment into the Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRISIN) scheme in the country.
This was disclosed by Dr Anthony Uwa, the Head of BRISIN implementation in Nigeria, to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja.
Naija News reports that BRISIN is an integrated system for the collection, storage and distribution of information to support the management of the economy.
According to Uwa, the recruitment cuts across qualifications ranging from school certificate to Ph. D holders and was not restricted by politics, ethnic, religious or other affiliations.
He however added that those with knowledge of ICT have an advantage.
The federal government had earlier disclosed that 5000 unemployed Nigerians would be recruited into the pilot phase to drive the implementation of the scheme in the FCT.
The government further stated that there would be more recruitment as the scheme gets expanded.
“The registration into the 5,000 recruitment for BRISINS implementation is now open online.”
“Please note that BRISIN is the best instrument for monitoring and control in all aspects of the economy.
“It has no political party, no colour, no ethnic group, no tribe and no religion; it is for the benefit of every Nigerian.
“BRISIN is a SYSTEM not a Ministry, Department or Agency, but an instrument of self-discipline that will assist Nigeria to the highest height.
“FCT is the capital of Nigeria with 62 wards, six area councils and one central admin head.
“So the 5000 people that will be recruited would serve at the ward, area council and Central Area.
“They will ensure that grassroot data and information are gotten and distributed for use by every MDA according to their interest to better manage their sectors.
“Applicants can access the form and register only from www.brisin.gov.ng; applicants that go through other means are at their own risk.”
“This pilot phase in the FCT will enable Nigerians to understand fully the enormous benefit of BRISIN to the development of the country,” Uwa said.
