The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has said screening for candidates who applied for its 2019 recruitment has not started.
Concise News understands that more than 250,000 applications were sent into the NDLEA portal for the recruitment exercise which ended on August 29th.
There were about 5,000 vacancies advertised for the recruitment exercise with the NDLEA giving a week’s concession to accommodate the initial hitches posed by poor network service.
Since the end of the registration, there have been rumours that list is out for the exercise.
However, a statement by NDLEA’s Head of Public Affairs Jonah Achema, on Monday in Abuja, said the agency has not invited applicants for screening nor shortlisted any.
“Contrary to the fake news making the rounds that NDLEA has released the shortlisted candidates for recruitment, the Agency wishes to state that the collation of names of applicants is ongoing,” he told NAN.
“Applicants who are successful for the next stage of the recruitment exercise will be communicated to at the appropriate time.
“Applicants are enjoined to disregard any information that is not directly from the agency as fake news,’’ he said.
