Vanguard reports that the NSCDC shortlisted 6,500 candidates for its final screening out of the over 1.4 million who initially applied for the paramilitary job. 

The Commandant General of the Corps, Ahmed Abubakar Audi, disclosed this at a news conference at the Corps Headquarters in Abuja. 

According to the report, Audi who was flanked by the secretary and director of the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Correctional Services Board, Aisha Rufai regretted that though the exercise started in 2019 several factors, chiefly the COVID-19 pandemic stalled its conclusion.

"Out of that, 200,000 really responded and out of this, 53, 116 were selected to write the Computer Based Test CBT examination. Out of this, 6, 500 candidates were shortlisted for the final screening out of which 5,000 will be selected and employed. 

“We, therefore, wish to implore all candidates who sat for the CBT, that is 6,500 who have been invited for the physical screening that the final screening of credentials and physical fitness test will be via SMS from 2nd to 25th of August 2021. 

He said the applicants were invited to check the application portal from July 20, 2021, for their names, screening location, guidelines and to print out their recruitment slip without which they won’t be allowed for the screening. 

According to him, six centres have been designated for the exercise and a spread across the six geo-political zones. He listed them as the NSCDC Zonal Command Headquarters Kaduna, Games Village in Bauchi, Federal University Lafia in Nasarawa state, NSCDC Training School in Oji River, Enugu state, Civil Defence College of Security Management in Abeokuta, and NABTEB in Benin, Edo state.
