The Federal Government has announced the review of the guidelines for recruitment into the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional, and Immigration Services, saying henceforth 35 per cent of recruitment into the services would be allocated to women.


The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, disclosed this at the end of the meeting of the Board of the Civil Defence, Fire, Correctional, and Immigration Services, saying that the 35 per cent allocation of slots to women was in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.


Tunji-Ojo, who spoke through the Secretary of the Board, Ja’afaru Ahmed, said the ongoing recruitment into the Federal Fire Service would be based on the new guidelines, which would focus largely on professionalism, gender mainstreaming, and federal character principles.


According to him, the development also comes with the modernization of the operations of the Nigeria Immigration Service, which he described as an all-encompassing: training, recruitment, promotion, professionalism, capacity building, and deployment of cutting-edge technologies.


The minister also warned Nigerians interested in applying not to patronize scammers, saying that the government is already aware of some scammers who are asking for money for recruitment into the Fire Service.
