Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has given an order to the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Service Board to hold the subsequent promotion examinations of its officers in the States where they operate.
The order was disclosed in a statement signed by the Deputy Director of Press, Ministry of Interior, Afonja Ajibola, on Tuesday, following an inspection visit by the Minister to the examination centre in Abuja.
According to the statement, Aregbesola noted that overcrowded examination centres could undermine the integrity of an exam.
The statement read in part: “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 seamless conduct of the examinations in the respective States”.
