The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has begun screening of more than 15,000 applicants for various positions in Kaduna State in its ongoing nationwide recruitment exercise.
The officer in charge of the exercise in Kaduna, Assistant Corps Marshal Susan Ajenge, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the exercise would last for five days.
Ajenge said that out of the 15,000 applicants, 8,000 had first degree, Higher National Diploma (HND), National Certificate in Education (NCE) and National Diploma, while the remaining had secondary school certificate.
“We will screen applicants’ certificates and check their height, chest and feet to ensure they are physically fit and healthy,” she said.
Ajenge said that those who applied but did not receive e-mail from FRSC inviting them for the screening exercise, could also come for the exercise.
“They should not forget to come along with their credentials, application print out and other relevant documents.
“We want to give everybody equal opportunity. As long as such persons meet the minimum requirements and have applied, they should come; we will screen them,’’ she said.
Some of the applicants, who spoke with NAN, described the exercise as smooth, orderly and well-coordinated.
One of the applicants, Mr Saidi Yekine, said that he was impressed with how the exercise was organised.
He said that the exercise was not stressful and there was no intimidation.
“We were treated with all the respect we deserved. In fact, the orderliness and the good human relations displayed by the FRSC officials made me to love the job even more,’’ Yekine said.
Miss Amarachukwu Ubosiogu, another applicant, gave FRSC a pass mark in the conduct of the screening exercise, which she described as excellent.
“We were treated well. No harassment or any form of victimisation.
“The officials are friendly and assisting us in any way they can with love. I really commend them for a well-organised exercise, ‘’ Ubosiogu said.
