Govt gives update on recruitment into civil service


The Bayelsa State Government in Monday gave an update on the planned recruitment of 1,000 Nigerians into the state civil service.

Deputy Governor, Rear Admiral John Gboriobiogha Jonah (retd), representing Governor Dickson reiterated that the government would adhere strictly to merit in the recruitment.

He stated this at the launch of a website for the recruitment exercise at the State Civil Service Commission on Monday.

He said the decision to create the website was to further demonstrate the Dickson-led administration’s resolve to give all qualified Bayelsans equal opportunity to get a place in the state civil service.

According to him, “The government wants to ensure there is no room for rumour and unfounded stories over the recruitment exercise and has made the website available so that interested applicants can have easy access to information.

“Bayelsa is a state of stories. We want to reduce that to the barest minimum when everybody has equal access to the same information. This is the main advantage of this particular website in the management of the recruitment exercise that is coming.”

Also speaking, Chief Kune Igoni Claudius, Commissioner in the Civil Service Commission, on behalf of the commission, disclosed that 23,000 Bayelsans collected the application forms and announced that the written examination has been fixed for August 22.

He commended Dickson for actualising the dream of the administration in reforming the Bayelsa state civil service and the employment of Bayelsans into various cadres.

“The launch of the website would confirm that the state government is serious about transparency in the recruitment exercise,” he added.
