The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has ordered the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration service Board (CDCFIB) to conduct the next promotion examinations of its officers in the various services in the states where they operate.
In a statement signed by the Ministry’s Director of Press, Afonja Fatai Ajibola, on Tuesday, the Minister gave the directives during an inspection visit to the examination centre at Sascon International school, CBT center Maitama, Abuja.
According to the statement, Aregbesola observed that examination in such a crowded environment does not give the needed integrity the exams should have.
He therefore ordered the Secretary of the board, Hajiya Aisha Rufa’i, to henceforth conduct promotion examinations in various States of the Federation.
The Minister added that since there are CBT centres across the States that could be used for the examination, it would go a long way in providing a seamless conduct of the examinations in the respective States.
Aregbesola commended the board for achieving the feat in conducting CBT examination which has added relevant credibility to the process.
