The Federal Road Safety Corps on Monday, commenced the screening of 324,000 applicants for recruitment in the Federal Capital Territory and 36 states of the federation.
The Corps Marshall, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, during an assessment visit to the two screening centres at the National Stadium and Mogadishu Barracks in Abuja, explained that only 4,000 successful applicants would be recruited by the corps.
He stated that about 400 would be engaged out of the 105,000 university graduates that were taking part in the screening which would hold for four days.
Oyeyemi expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the exercise which he described as orderly, attributing this to the high number of graduate applicants.
The applicants for officers cadre, the FRSC boss said, would be screened on Monday and Tuesday while the screening for the rank and file cadre would hold between Thursday and Sunday.
He said, “The programme started by 6 am, you can see the orderliness, it shows the level of planning in accordance with the directive of the Secretary to Government of the Federation.
“The same thing is going on all over the federation. We are working with about 324,000 applicants nationwide out of which we have about 105,000 graduates and you can see their level of discipline too, I think I’m impressed.” He noted.
