Photos: Immigration Recruitment! Lagos Job Seekers Protest, Halt Traffic

Meanwhile in Lagos, thousands of job seekers who were invited to take an aptitude test by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) seized all roads leading to the National Stadium venue of the test in protest, shortly after they were told it has been postponed. The young job seekers asked that their N1000 processing fee be returned to them, hence they won’t be returning back home any time soon. The protest took place for several hours with the candidates chanting anti- government songs and blocking major roads.
According to reports, at least 100, 000 job seekers came out for the screening test which was supposed to hold at the 45,000-capacity National Stadium.
Meanwhile, some people have called on the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro that the N1000 processing fee was uncalled for, and with about 6,000,000 candidates they will be making N6,000,000,000.  But the minister explained that the N1,000 was charged by the consulting firm to defray cost of accessing the website to fill forms.
