Nigeria's Immigration Recruitment Tragedy: FG Cancels Recruitment Exercise, Offers Families of Victims Automatic Employment
Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, disclosed this to State House correspondents on Wednesday at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting which was devoted to the incident.
He said one of the three beneficiaries must be a lady.
Jonathan also directed that all those who sustained injuries and are currently hospitalised be given automatic employment in the service.
While ordering that the ill-fated exercise be cancelled, the President set up a committee led by the Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission, to conduct a fresh exercise.
The committee has the Comptroller-General of NIS as well as representatives of the Inspector-General of Police and the heads of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Coprs, Nigerian Prisons Service, State Security Service and the Federal Road Safety Commission as members.
