FG Announces Fresh Recruitment Of 1000 Nigerians (See The Job)


The Federal Government has revealed its plan to recruit about 1,000 workers on the completion of the Warri-Itakpe rail project.

The federal government has announced plans to recruit over 1000 workers for the Warri-Itakpe standard gauge rail corridor.

Mr Fidet Okhiria, the Managing Director, Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos.

Okhiria said the completion of the rail project will require additional staff, hence the government will train and employ new 1000 staff.

“Warri-Itakpe standard gauge rail corridor is about 320km, about 12 stations and we have to employ people that will maintain the tracks, people that will work in the stations and sell tickets.

“Also, technicians that will examine the train. So, we are going to engage close to over 1000 to maintain about 320km track, both junior and senior.

“New employees can’t just be sent there; they must be trained.

“In order for them to be trained, we will be moving people from the existing staff, but we have to replace them. So we have to fill up those position before the new people will be trained and certify to be part of the train operations,” he said.

NAN reports that NRC operates a one-year training programme for graduate staff and three months for the junior staff.

According to Okhiria, the 12 stations for the train service are still under construction, adding that temporary stations would be used pending completion.

He, however, assured that the stations would be completed by the first quarter of 2019, noting that some of the houses at the railway village were renovated recently for workers.

Okhiria noted that a lot has been achieved, especially in the rail system under the current administration, with the purchase of more rolling stock and wagons.
