FG Reviews Paramilitary Recruitment To Reserve 35% Slots For Women
The Nigerian Government has announced the review of the guidelines for recruitment into Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional and Immigration Services, to help accommodate 35% of women into the services.
In a statement signed by Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Minister of Interior, Alao Babatunde, the Minister, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo revealed this at the end of the meeting of the Board of the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional and Immigration Services in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Tunji-Ojo noted that the 35% allocation of slots to women was in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu adding that the on-going recruitment into the Federal Fire Service would be on the basis of the new guildlines which would focus largely on professionalism, gender mainstreaming and Federal Character principles.
He also warned Nigerians interested in applying not to patronise scammers as the government is already aware of some scammers who are asking for money for recruitment into the Fire Service. He insists that the Board in due course would release timelines for recruitment into all the services.
