He said that at the end of the issuance of application forms, more than 23,000 applications were issued and more than 12,000 returned their duly completed forms.
He said the website being launched on Monday had such information as the list of all qualified (cleared) and unqualified (uncleared) candidates published according to their local government areas.
Igoni-Claudius said the criteria used for the screening were a birth certificate or age declaration (applicant not less than 18 years or more than 50 years); educational qualifications; NYSC discharge or exemption certificate; and government identification letter, among others.
