A Coalition of Borno Youths who applied for recruitment with the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) since May 2023 have called on Governor Babagana Umara Zulum and the National Assembly members from the state to come to their help and allow justice to prevail.
The group also appreciated the earlier assurances and support of HRH, the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abubakar Garbai Ibn. Umar El Kaneni to ensure justice is done on their issues few months ago when they paid him homage and laid their complaints before the royal father.
Spokesman of the youths group, Garba Rabiu during a press briefing at the NUJ Press Center Maiduguri on Tuesday said,” We are indigenes of Borno state that applied for recruitment into the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps NSCDC (2022) and Nigeria Immigration Service NIS (2023).
He said “Rather, those that did not write the exams in Maiduguri nor undergo the screening exercise in Bauchi were then employed by the organisations. Yet, despite our unwavering commitment and dedication, not a single one of us (NSCDC 140/NIS 151) from Borno state was shortlisted for final documentation or employment.
They appealedto His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to investigate this grave injustice that has been done to us, to ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions.
