Home » » Unconstitutional Act of Exploitation in Nigerian Government Jobs
My heart bleeds for the deceased of the stadium stampede that happened on Saturday. 16 confirmed dead, many more un-accounted for. Who is responsible for these deaths? What a national disgrace to conduct job applications and exam in a stadium. Why call for an employment screening and then charge struggling Nigerians N1,000 for such screening. Why call for an employment screening if those only to be hired have been identified and secretly selected for the job? It's so terrible the things our government put us through. Will they get away with these terrible acts against humanity. The answer like many Nigerians is a big Yes. They always take us for granted. 16 people died in stampedes when a half million people were invited to apply for fewer than 5,000 Nigerian government jobs.
Here, I believe this was an act of exploitation. Over N3 billion realized in what was supposed to be an employment exercise. One frustrated House of Reps member, Abike Dabiri-Erewa like most Nigerians, is not happy with what happened during the National Immigration Service Test which occurred across stadiums in Nigeria. She labelled it 'a failure of leadership in Nigeria' citing that the house had passed a resolution asking government agencies to stop charging applicants for employment. Verdict: The Nigeria government ignored the out cry.
