Fowler made this known on Wednesday in Abuja when he appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petition.
The FIRS boss’ appearance at the lower chamber followed a petition from some applicants, who claimed to have been excluded from the employment processes.
The Service had invited applications for various positions in series of adverts placed in some national dailies.
Fowler said that out of the 700,000 applicants more than 2,000 had first class degrees in various disciplines and were qualified to be engage by the Service.
He assured that the organisation would ensure fairness and due process in the recruitment process.
