House Cautions MDAs on Online Recruitment


House of Representatives yesterday directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs) to henceforth make available hard copies of their recruitment forms to prospective applicants in the states and local governments, noting that online applications tend to cut off job seekers living in areas without internet connectivity.

House of Representatives yesterday directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs) to henceforth make available hard copies of their recruitment forms to prospective applicants in the states and local governments, noting that online applications tend to cut off job seekers living in areas without internet connectivity.
The House took the decision following a motion by the leader of the opposition in the House, Hon. Mohammed Ali Ndume, who had earlier brought the issue under Matters of Urgent National Importance.
He reasoned that in as much as he was not opposed to the use of information technology by government ministries and departments to discharge their responsibilities, access to internet in the country had not reached a level where it could be adopted as an absolute channel for recruitment of staff.
The leader of the opposition argued that it would not be fair if MDAs expect rural dwellers and others residing in places where internet services are non-existent to access employment opportunities placed on the internet.
Ndume called on the House to compel various organs of government to ensure that hard copies of their employment forms were simultaneously circulated with the online recruitment method.
Leader of the Action Congress and the Minority Whip Honourable Femi Gbajabimila said that the policy of online recruitment did not favour the constituents represented by the members of the House, majority of whom , according to him, reside in the rural areas.
