The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has ordered the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration service Board to conduct the next promotion examinations of its officers in the various services in the states where they operate.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Ministry’s Deputy Director of Press, Afonja Ajibola on Tuesday.
Aregbesola who gave the directive during an inspection visit to the examination centre in Abuja stated that overcrowded examination centres can fault the integrity of an exam.
The statement reads in part “Aregbesola observed that examination in such a crowded environment does not give the needed integrity the exams should have.
“He, therefore, ordered the Secretary of the board, Hajiya Aisha Rufa’i, to henceforth conduct promotion examinations in various states of the Federation.
“The Minister added that since there are CBT centres across the states that could be used for the examination, it would go a long way in providing seamless conduct of the examinations in the respective states.
“The Minister commended the board for achieving the feat in conducting CBT examination which has added relevant credibility to the process.”
