No fewer than 300,000 applications were received for the 750 positions advertised by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Its Director of Public Affairs, Mr Osita Nwaja, announced the figures in Enugu when he visited the Enugu zonal office of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Nwaja said that the recruitment was segmented, adding that the first phase of the exercise ended on June 26.
“We had more than 300,000 applicants that applied for the 750 positions which are in three cadres, junior, middle and senior cadres. We are considering a whole lot of junior staff so that they will grow in the system. The criteria were well spelt out and those that met them wrote the examination,” he said.
