Upon Customs assurance on vacancy portal response, site still inaccessible

More than 24 hours after the management of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) assured of fixing applicants complaints of ill-responding recruitment portal and non-capturing of some institutions, attended by applicants in the portal plus poor network system, the portal, vacancy.customs.gov.ng has continued to be non-responsive.
NCS’s Public Relations Officer, Joseph Attah, had on Tuesday at a press conference in Abuja, announced that the portal’s hang-up issues have been resolved and commended applicants for their resilience and patience within the troubled period, but several applicants who visited the site on Wednesday were disappointed after several trials.
Attah had noted that “Some institutions were not earlier captured by the portal system, when our attention was drawn to it, we resolved that immediately.
“Other challenges are on poor network which is not our fault but where the applicants are applying from and also the situation where applicants did not enter required information as demanded by the portal.
“There must be a little challenge; it is expected when people in hundreds are applying at the same time.
“Though, we have a robust platform capable of taking this pressure, our server is effective and we are collaborating with some service providers to ensuring the exercise is efficient,” Attah claimed on Tuesday.
Business Hilights recalls that Nigerian Customs had announced readiness to recruit about 3,200 new officers to deepen service delivery and opened the dedicated portal for the recruitment on Wednesday, April 17.
