NDLEA SUSPENDS SCREENING OF APPLICANTS DUE TO INCREASE IN COVID-19 CASES ACROSS THE COUNTRY
Following a rise in the number of COVID-19 infections in the country, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has suspended the screening of applicants in its ongoing recruitment exercise.
On January 8, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, directed the NDLEA to put the screening of 5,000 new recruits on hold.
The Agency had shortlisted candidates who were going to proceed to the Academy in Jos for final screening and enlistment.
The acting Chairman of NDLEA, Shadrach Haruna, has redirected the screening team to suspend all actions and return to the National Headquarters, Abuja.
Haruna further said there shall be no harm against any candidate that tuned up for the screening or that failed to do so.
