Many federal government agencies and ministries have defiantly continued to carry out illegal recruitment despite many warnings by the Federal Government.
The federal government has resolved to sanction the agencies and ministries involved in such recruitment. The Federal Inland Revenue Service, National Petroleum Corporation Limited, Nigeria Customs Service and Central Bank of Nigeria are some of the agencies.
Investigations showed that some agencies issued employment letters to jobseekers, which were not accredited by the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation and the Federal Civil Service Commission, while others simply replaced retired or dead officials with friends and family members.
Applicants and job seekers have shared their experience attempt to get jobs in some of these agencies.
