The management of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has released the list of successful candidates for recruitment into the agency.
This development was confirmed on Friday in a statement in Abuja by the NDLEA spokesman, Deputy Commander of Narcotics (DCN) Jonah Achema.
He noted that 5,000 individuals were successful in the recruitment exercise and directed them to report at the agency’s training center located in Katton-Rikkos, Jos, Plateau State for screening and documentation.
The list of successful candidates is now available on the agency’s website www.ndlea.gov.org while notifications have been sent to them via e-mail and SMS as well.
“The affected candidates, numbering 5, 000, are to appear at the Agency’s Academy, Citadel Counter-Narcotics Nigeria, (CCNN), Katton-Rikkos, Jos, Plateau State for the screening and documentation exercise between January 10 and 23, 2021 at 0900 hours daily,” the statement made available to NAN reads.
“The candidates are divided into four different groups for the screening, in adherence to the COVID-19 pandemic protocol.
“The order and schedule for the exercise according to the group into which the candidates fall are also indicated. They are expected to arrive a day ahead of their screening period,” Achema added.
Naija News understands according to the statement that candidates are to report to the screening venue with documents including their guarantors’ forms, originals and duplicates of academic credentials, birth certificate or age declaration and indigene certificates.
“They are also expected to come along with certificate of medical fitness from a government hospital as well as a pair of shorts, T-shirts, canvass and stockings,” the NDLEA spokesman said.
It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, approved the recruitment of 5,000 Personnel for the agency.
Meanwhile, the National Identity Management Commission officials has accused the Federal Government of covering up cases of COVID-19 in the commission.
The President of the Association of the Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, NIMC unit, Asekokhai Lucky, during an interview with Punch, disclosed that three officials of the agency have contacted the virus.
According to Lucky, workers are pissed because the management of the commission is aware of the development but refused to inform the workers, who could have taken necessary precautions to protect themselves.
He further stated that officials of NIMC will meet with the Federal Government on Friday (today) to discuss COVID-19 scare and other issues that led to the strike.
