Photos: Immigration Recruitment! Lagos Job Seekers Protest, Halt Traffic

Meanwhile in Lagos, thousands of job seekers who were invited to take an aptitude test by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) seized all roads leading to the National Stadium venue of the test in protest, shortly after they were told it has been postponed. The young job seekers asked that their N1000 processing fee be returned to them, hence they won’t be returning back home any time soon. The protest took place for several hours with the candidates chanting anti- government songs and blocking major roads.

According to reports, at least 100, 000 job seekers came out for the screening test which was supposed to hold at the 45,000-capacity National Stadium.

Meanwhile, some people have called on the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro that the N1000 processing fee was uncalled for, and with about 6,000,000 candidates they will be making N6,000,000,000.  But the minister explained that the N1,000 was charged by the consulting firm to defray cost of accessing the website to fill forms.

  5. Twas a show of shame yesterday,I ws involved in the exercise and to crown it all,I did not get the exam question cos I can't get into the main bowl as the crowd was so much. Although there was no casualties but I can't risk my life jumping from the upperside of the stadium down to the main bowl. So many disruption that yesterday,infact my legs re aching me right now.

  9. How can we explain? In trying to make d exercise transparent, many lifes have been lost. Can't it be done online and online few thousands will be called for the aptitude test. This is just to show d whole world how massive unemployment has been ravaging ds country. This is a total failure on the part of the government.

  10. FG should return their money. How can N1000 be the cost of filling a form online? Are they the ones paying for their internet connection?

  13. Shame on our leaders, there's gotta be a part in the bible with a special curse for these people. How many of their children or siblings came out for the test? God's wrath will come upon any leader in Nigeria who knows the right thing to do but is intentionally ignoring it....I'm blabbing now....its cos I'm so upset with these money miss road leaders of ours.....errrrrggghhh
