Evidence of the high rate of Unemployment in the country became evident again as the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) announced that just 220 applicants will be shortlisted among the 376,631 that applied for a job with the agency.
In a statement made available on its official Twitter handle, the commission maintained that only applicants with specialised skills and required disciplines as listed in its offer will be considered.

These include: Accountancy, Law, Economics, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Forensic, Computer Science, Statistics/Mathematics, Mass Communications, Sociology, Quantity Surveying, Architecture, Engineering, Procurement and Forensics.
Also according to the statement, the shortlisted applicants will be subjected to an online assessment test, a computer-based aptitude test, and a written assessment test “which will qualify them for an oral interview and other stages of assessment”
ICPC said no applications for the positions of assistant directors will be considered as the 2020 budgetary allocation approved for the commission (after the recruitment advertisement had been placed) does not provide for this.
It said the online assessment test will cover the remaining advertised six job levels, and will be administered over a specific period to assess candidates’ IQ and Logical Reasoning.
