NNPC Announces Date For Recruitment Test
The Nigerian national petroleum corporation (NNPC) has started sending messages to applicants who were successful in the first stage of its 2019 recruitment exercise.
Naija News understands the candidates are been invited for a computer-based aptitude test which is the next stage in the recruitment exercise.
The notification been received says the NNPC recruitment test will hold on June 1, 2019.
The message sighted by one of our correspondents reads:
“Following your online application for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), you are hereby notified of your success in the first level screening exercise and the scheduling of a computer-based test for Saturday 1st June 2019”.
“The time and venue of the test and other required details will be communicated to you on or before [the] 27th of May, 2019.”
The notification added that “Candidates not qualified will not receive further communication from us regarding the computer-based test and other activities.”
In a related development, the NNPC says people living with disability will also be accommodated in its ongoing recruitment process.
Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC group general manager, group public affairs division, made this known in an interview with NAN in Abuja on Tuesday.
“We have a corporate policy here and we do employ many of the physically challenged persons in the corporation. We have one with us here at the corporate affairs division,” he said.
“We have them accommodated also in this ongoing recruitment and also under our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSO) we have help a lot of the physically challenged especially in the Niger Delta area.’’
Naija News reports some of the physically challenged applicants had stormed the NNPC office in protest of the alleged non-inclusion in the recruitment exercise.
President of the group of applicants, Godstime Onyegbula, said during the protest that “we are here to fight for minimum of five per cent employment opportunity to be given to people living with disability as provided by law.”
“We have written to NNPC several times making them to understand that in the ongoing recruitment we were not included.
“This is because in their form there is no provision to indicate the nature of disabled to be employed.
“Several times we have written to them, no response, sometimes when we come here, we will be embarrassed by the security men. Sometime, they will chase us always, now we have come in our numbers from the 36 states and FCT.’’
He added that their protest is backed up by the law as the president has signed into law the Disability Act.
