Jonathan Orders Moro to Refund N1,000 Fee to NIS Job Seekers


President Goodluck Jonathan has reportedly ordered embattled Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, to refund the N1,000 application fee collected from job seekers who were to write the ill fated Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) aptitude test that turned sour at the weekend.

Scores of youths lost their lives in a stampede in Abuja and several other cities, including pregnant women, when they presented themselves for the screening exercise organised by the NIS.

The President had on Monday summoned both the minister and Comptroller General of the NIS, David Paradang, apparently to explain their roles in the recruitment tragedy.
