What about those currently serving and are due to pass out by February, can they still apply by probably uploading their PPA letter pending the arrival of the discharge certificate.

Rubbish. Yet another scheme for nepotism, favouritism, quota-ism, and corruption. Of course there's no room for merit. No room for the best and brightest.

Minimum of 2.1 "or 2.2 with relevant industry experience" . Meaning what? It's incredible how we craft defective laws and rules with loopholes for nonsense.

Nigeria isn't ready to develop. It didn't start today. It wouldn't end tomorrow. Let the beneficiaries and their 'oga nla' benefactors enjoy. Jokers.
