The Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire, and Immigration Services Board has been called upon to investigate the selection process of successful candidates from Osun State in the recently concluded recruitment for the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps as well as the Nigeria Immigration Service.
Israel Omiranti, who coordinated around 170 applicants from Osun State, expressed during an interview in Osogbo that despite fulfilling all the necessary requirements for the Immigration and Civil Defence recruitment, none of them were ultimately chosen for the positions.
Omiranti mentioned, "We appeal to the CDCFIB chairman and other administrators to examine the selection of candidates from Osun State for the Nigeria Immigration Service and Nigeria Civil Defence Corps. Numerous candidates who applied for different roles are affected."
Furthermore, Omiranti noted that the applicants had written a letter to the state Governor, Ademola Adeleke, seeking his intervention to address the perceived injustice in the selection process for successful candidates from Osun State.
In the letter, a part stated, "We want to bring to your attention a matter of grave concern concerning the recent recruitment conducted by the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire, and Immigration Services Board across Osun State and the nation.
"Having diligently completed the exam and participated in the physical screening and certificate verification at Ibadan Zone F, we were dismayed to find that none of the Osun State applicants were deemed suitable for the positions we had applied for. This disregard for the rights and competencies of Osun State applicants raises significant doubts about the fairness of the recruitment process."
"We kindly request your involvement in thoroughly investigating this matter. Your Excellency, we implore you to ensure justice prevails and that the recruitment procedure maintains transparency and impartiality."
