Not less than 60,000 candidates on Saturday sat for the Computer Based Test of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation recruitment exercise in the country.
Mr Isaiah Inuwa, Chief Operating Officer Corporate Services, disclosed this to newsmen while monitoring some of the CBT centres in Abuja.
He said that the exam was ongoing in about 94 centres in 22 states.
“This is fantastic, you can see everything is going on well. We have two centres here and you see the orderly way people are being screened for accreditation.
“What you see here is ongoing in about 94 centres in 22 states across the federation.
“This is another way the corporation is showing transparency in carrying out its activities and this has also given Nigerians the opportunity to hold their leaders accountable.
“All the candidates are scheduled with time. Some 8:00 a.m., some 9:00 a.m. and the questions are not the same because they are computer generated,” he said.
He said that the corporation in collaboration with some institutions worked together to ensure the success of the programme.
NAN observed that at various centres, while some candidates had finished the test, others were waiting and some were being accredited.
Some of the candidates who spoke to NAN said that the process had been transparent so far.
Armed security personnel were present at the various centres visited within the FCT.
