26 Million Job Seekers Applied For NNPC Jobs As Recruitment Portal Closes by ikorodureporta: 7:16am On Mar 28, 2019
Nigeria’s unemployment crises again came to the fore early this week as a total of 25. 6 million applications passed through the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) recruitment portal before it formally closed Tuesday.

A source familiar with the recruitment process told Daily Sun that the 25.6 million applications was mind boggling to both NNPC management and the Federal Government as it further painted the picture of the magnitude of the country’s unemployment challenge.

This was coming as data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) show Nigeria’s unemployment crisis worsened in the third quarter of 2018 (Q3,2018), as it rose from 18.8 per cent in Q3 2017 to 23.1 per cent in the third quarter of 2018, according to labour report by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

The NBS data revealed further that the total number of people classified as unemployed-which means they did nothing at all or worked for a few hours (under 20 hours a week) rose from 17.6 million in Q4 2017 to 20.9 million in Q3 2018.

On March 13, 2018, NNPC began massive recruitment drive to fill various positions at the graduate trainees senior officers, supervisory and managerial cadres with the opening of its recruitment portal.

Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of NNPC, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, had said the move was part of efforts to enhance productivity.

Commenting, Head of Tax and Corporate Advisory Services at PwC Nigeria, Mr. Taiwo Oyedele, said the combination of unemployment and underemployment figures in the region of about 40 per cent was responsible for the upsurge in applications, adding that some of the applicants are already employed but are seeking better opportunities.

He maintained that until government begins to take practical steps to grow the Micro Small Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), the over 40 million unemployed youth figure will continue to ballon.

He said there are over 30 million MSMEs in Nigeria lacking the right monetary policies to access finance and vocational training which may enable them expand and employ the over 30 million job seekers in the category.

He said NNPC may not employ up to one per cent of the application received which he said may be about 1,000 people or less, stressing that the remaining number returns to the labour market.

‘‘We hope that NNPC deploys merit because in the absence of that, you see all manner of list coming from politicians and the big men in Nigeria to take up the slots and at the end of the day, the purpose would be defeated,’’ he said.

For his part, Managing Director Cowry Assets Limited, Mr. Johnson Chukwu, said the figure should not surprise Nigerians because the public sector has not carried out a major recruitment exercise in the last four years, hence the pressure on NNPC. Chukwu said a rise in the country’s unemployment figure from 18.8 percent in 2017 to 23.1 in 2018, translating to about 80 million unemployed youths could have been responsible for the NNPC application figure.

He said to reduce the unemployment figure, Nigeria needs to grow the economy at about 10 percent, by coming up with specific industrial policy which will aid growth

This is about 10% of Nigeria population who applied for the job out of which few are employed while others are underemployed and unemployed. In the end, slots have already been alloted to politicians' children. What a country! I pity our unborn generation.

Four powerful CPUs with enough disk space inserted can save up to 61.2 terabytes of data of all the applicants if we assume that an average of 7 documents were uploaded along with the CV. If this Figure of ~26 million applicants is true, let the NNPC give us a breakdown of the number of applicants per positions they applied for, the potential graduate hires versus experienced hires, the states of origin of the applicants, the number of applicants with BScs and MScs, the distribution of experience by experienced hires, the university where the most applicants graduated from et al.

I doubt this Figure, I feel it is bandied around so that if those who are qualified are not considered in favour of those who have connections, they'd resign to their fate of "afterall, too many people applied for the positions".

In all your assessment you failed to consider the Ethernet speed capabilities of the Network Cards, the routers and switches and the routing protocols, the bandwidth available and the service provider being used.

The Network Storage topology is also something worthy of note.

It's not as easy as you think. It's not like you copying and pasting data and documents from one PC to another.

That's a lie, I saw this exact same figure two days after the portal was opened, This number should have atleast double after the remaining 10 whole days

I don't think we have up to 20 million unemployed 2.1 graduates or 2.2 with masters in this country.


I don't think the applicants are even up to 1 million( even that too is alot considering only about 1.5k are needed)

Do you have the information on the network cards and internet protocols? I am interested because I am considering a project in the near future to digitize our elections and simultaneously process 200,000 votes in 3 minutes continuously for ~12 hours? Do you think we can talk since you are an expert?

The fact 25.6 million people applied doesn't mean 100% are unemployed. Some people wanna step up. I know a lot of working people who applied for the job. Who wouldn't want to work in Nnpc?

Still doesn't change the fact that unemployment is rife but not everyone who applied is unemployed.
