NIS Recruitment: We Didn’t Charge N1, 000 Recruitment Fee, Says Ministry Of Interior

Abba MoroThe claim by unemployed Nigerians that the Ministry of Interior was charging N1000 for applications to get recruited into the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has been vehemently denied by the ministry which said the fee per applicant, was for the cost of scratch card to access the recruitment portal.

It would be recalled that jobseekers, under the aegis of the Nigeria Unemployed Youths Vanguard had protested what they described as exploitation by the Nigerian government when they besieged the interior ministry’s premises on Monday.

But the permanent secretary in the ministry of interior, Anastasia Mabi Daniel-Nwaobia, who stressed that the ministry does not charge nor accept fee for jobs, advised those peddling such rumours to desist from it, as it was capable of denting government’s image.

Her words, “For the avoidance of doubt the Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service, do not charge and will not accept money for jobs, and anybody that demands and accepts money or bribes for job will be appropriately sanctioned in line with extant regulations guiding discipline in the service.”



  1. Who is deceiving who, haba nigeria wen ar wen goin to stop deceivin ouselves,we paid the money into their account without given any useless access card. Evil people

  2. Our govt is not sincere to its citizens. It is true NIS collect 1000 bcs i paid my own 2day at a sterling bank n they giv me one stupid paper to go and complete my registration online. God will purnish u all!

  3. Why do i have to buy a scratch card to access a recruitment portal when it is possible to access it without the card? This is another way of exploitation. If you are sincere with your claim, then remove the card access to the recruitment portal and allow applicants send in their full details once and for all. Who printed the Cards in the first place? and whose name is it carrying? Stop fooling yourself!

  4. What about the recent invitation letter sent by IMANNAT FORCE for training and course? A payment of N20000 was also requested to be paid into IMANNAT’s agent account on or before Dec 8, 2013. Is this letter and information real?

  5. this people think dat there are fuling others, but they are not, 4 there is an adage dat says if you do good you do 2 urself u do bad u do 2 urself wat eva u sow dat is wat u wil reap, hw u lay ur bed dat is hw u ley on it

  6. Charging 100 does not matter,just fixed examination date for us and let us knw our faith.other forces do charge money too,pls delay is dagerous.
