As part of efforts to share Nigeria’s know-how expertise and provide assistance on the basis of assessed and perceived needs of other needy countries, the Directorate of Technical Aide Corps on Tuesday, held its 15th recruitment evaluation exercise.

The exercise which is a three-day event, was held at the Nicon Luxury Hotels and Apartment, Abuja, and had in attendance over 172 applicants from the selected 550 applicants going through the medicals and another evaluation test.

Speaking to newsmen, the Director of Programme, Mr. Mohammed Shehu Kangiwa, stated that the exercise is about recruiting professional personnel for capacity building for the African Caribbean and the Pacific countries that are in need and have requested Nigeria’s manpower for development.

Kangiwa said; “We had over 8,000 applications across the countries, from observing all requirements from the needy countries, we have judiciously selected and sort the professionals out to about 550, as much as possible we have a balance in our selection, as we considered all states of the federation including Abuja during the process.

“The request we got by these countries was especially for Ph.D. holders, we worked round the clock to ensure we have a balanced number of Ph.D. holders as candidates from different states.

“The Federal Government has provided the necessary logistics both financial and material to run the program, so for every volunteer, we send out there, their welfare is and will be the concern of the federal government.

“The progress made so far by the corps is, by all means, commendable as we each day expect over 172 candidates, and judging from the feasible coordination, one can see that the exercise is going according to all plans made with no major hitches or glitches”.

The exercise which is in strict adherence to the Provisions of the Technical Aid Corps Act and the Directors Operational Guidelines is strictly based on receipt of formal requests from recipient countries.  The corps was required to provide manpower on specifics, mostly on the educational and health sectors– general nursing/midwifery.

DTAC is charged with the mandate of organizing the exercise to recruit volunteers who are not just ordinary persons, but professionals in their field who would go out to assist those needy countries.
