Youths Palaver: Application for the Federal Civil Service Job - Elehinle Olalekan Edward

11 November 2016, 09:56

The Nigerian Federal Civil Service commenced the application for job vacancies in some Federal Ministries on the 19th September 2016. Many youths are showing their disappointment towards the incompetency of their website since the commencement of the online application. Some of the youths that were met at the cyber café show their displeasures, “I have been applying since day one of the application and yet today which is five days after I couldn’t gain access” Musa at Lugbe said. As many people are saying the problem is due to the traffic on the website as a result of many people trying to apply at the same time. “Millions of Nigerian youths want to get a stable job; therefore many of them want to get employed in the Civil Service, there are many people that are on the website every hour, that is the problem” A civil servant in Abuja said, yet many people still believe it is the incompetency of the website developer and builders in Nigeria that result in the incapability of the website to accommodate thousands of applicants at the same time. “We do not have competent website builders in this country, I applied for African Union Youth Volunteer Corps that received thousands of youth applications across Africa, there was no problem, likewise the Mandela Washington Fellowship Application. Both application were through their websites and there was no problem, why Nigeria? I think we should consult international website builders in China, United States to help us out” David advised. Many of the youths also pointed to the fact that the same problem faced during the Nigeria Npower Teach Corps application was also the same problem being faced in the Federal Civil Service application. “I have spent money buying airtime in cyber café to apply for this job for the past few days and yet the website is not responding” Tunde said, showing his displeasure. I think the Federal Civil Service should do something in case of future application in Nigeria in order to avoid the repetition of this problem which always gets applicants to be frustrated. A web develop expert at Lugbe said “From their website 37 application portals can be created, each portal for every state and FCT in Nigeria, this will prevent the problem of traffic and prevent unnecessary frustration and cash spending by applicants”.
