The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has denied media report that its recruitment site crashed one day after opening.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem, the FRSC said “Our attention has been drawn to the rumour going round that the Corps recruitment site crashed few hours after it went live. We are much disturbed that an online media will go to the press because of few complaints from people that could not get through either as a result of congestion or network . We even learnt that contrary to instructions, some applicants are using hand held phones instead of computer.
“The medium left out the experience of thousands of applicants that are getting through second per second which we are monitoring at our situation room created mainly for recruitment purposes. Contrary to the speculations, we are pleased to inform you that the site has been stable with thousand applicants already acknowledged on the database. Furthermore, there is need to state categorically that there is a dedicated site for the recruitment (www.recruitment.frsc.gov.ng) which is totally different from the frsc official website (frsc.gov.ng) which so many applicants are using . For the avoidance of doubts, we have received more than 10, 000 successful applications from applicants within one day and half window , specifically about 6,000 today from our back end.
Applicants should please endeavour to call our toll free number 122 , 08077690361, 08077690362 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org whenever they encounter any hitch.”
