Recruitment: Federal Civil Service Commission website crashes


The website of the Federal Civil Service Commission of Nigeria (FCSC) is down. This is happening barely six hours after the commission announced the commencement of massive recruitment for 2017/2018 into some ministries and agencies.

A visit to the website,, as at the time of filling this report resulted in the following – ‘Error establishing a database connection’.  The error message has been there for hours prior to this time.

The recruitment exercise which is to last for a period of six weeks offers a full time job. It is open to all OND, HND or BA/BSc certificate holders in all 36 states and FCT.

Interested Nigerians with required qualifications were directed to apply online.

The ministries where placements are needed are Federal Ministry of Information; Federal Ministry of Environment; Federal Ministry of Justice; Federal Ministry of Trade and Investments; and Bureau of Public Procurement.

For the sake of millions of unemployed Nigerians, we all hope that the website will be up and running effectively soon.
