Arase affirmed the Commission’s commitment to maintaining a transparent and merit-based recruitment process.

Ikechukwu Ani, the Head of Press and Public Relations, urged aspiring candidates to continue applying via the recruitment portal.

Out of the received applications, 217,105 met the initial requirements, with 217,300 applicants vying for general duty roles and 70,676 for specialist positions.

Notably, 69,426 applications were rejected, primarily due to over-age requirements.

The recruitment portal, which opened on October 15, 2023, will remain accessible until November 26, 2023, aligning with the Federal Character Commission’s six-week application window for government agency vacancies.

Mandatory requirements for applicants include Nigerian citizenship, possession of a National Identification Number (NIN), a minimum of 5 credits in relevant subjects, and an age bracket of 18-25 years.

The application process itself incurs no costs.
