Alhaji Abdullahi Goje, the General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communications, made the clarification on Tuesday in Lagos.
Goje said that the exercise was in accordance with the extant requirements by Nigerian laws.
He said in a statement that the recruitment process started over one year ago as evident in the advertisements placed for recruitment in the newspapers.
“The vacancies were widely advertised in the national dailies and examinations conducted across the six geo-political zones of the country by reputable consultants.
“The vacancies were also well publicised on the recruitment portal of the authority’s website.
“The Federal Character Commission (FCC) is fully involved in this recruitment. Interviews took place across the six geo-political zones,’’ he said.
Goje said reassured Nigerians of NPA’s commitment to the rule of law and compliance to the Federal Government’s rules, regulations and directives. (NAN)
