Anambra FCC commissioner urges indigenes to apply for federal jobs
By Praise Necherem
The Commissioner representing Anambra State at the Federal Character Commission (FCC), Rev. Uche Ibeabuchi, has asked qualified indigenes of the state to take advantage of thousands of jobs created by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to be meaningfully engaged.
He expressed worry over the non-challant attitudes of citizens of the state, creating room for applicants from other states to fill the available vacancies.
Speaking to newsmen in his country home in Oba, Idemili South local government area of state, Ibeabuchi urged qualified citizens not to see age as hindrance but to always apply for federal government jobs whenever they were advertised.
He pledged his willingness to tackle unemployed headlong in line with President Buhari administration’s commitment to engage youths and reduce unemployment in Nigeria.
“One cannot be employed without him applying for the job when it is advertised. Anambra citizens hardly apply for federal jobs when vacancies are advertised, and this is affecting them in no small measure.
“President Mohammadu Buhari, in his bid to meaningfully engage youths of the country and reduce unemployment, has graciously provided hundreds of thousands of jobs waiting to be filled. Our people should make good use of this opportunity. Many complain about their age being a hindrance for them applying for federal jobs; but I have continued to tell them that age cannot be a hindrance.
“Age is only considered when it comes to uniform jobs like army, police, civil defence, customs, immigration and others; but people of whatever age can apply when it comes conventional civil service jobs.”
