The PRO stated that the shortlisted applicants have been notified by e-mail in line with customs guidelines.
The Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) has expressed dismay over the criminal activities of these elements and gave assurances of his determination to preside over a recruitment process that will be credible, transparent and smooth from the beginning to the end.”
Accordingly, after a painstaking short-listing process, a total of 162,399 have been short-listed out of 828,333 candidates that applied.”
Attah concluded saying, the recruitment process into the customs service required no monetary payment, warning that any request for payment from any quarter should be regarded as fraudulent and ignored.
