“The federal government, through the Board, has approved the review of the guidelines for recruitment into and promotion in all the four services under the Ministry of Interior,” Tunji-Ojo stated.

The minister emphasized that the recruitment process would prioritize professionalism, adherence to Federal Character principles, and, most importantly, gender mainstreaming.

He said the move aligns with the government’s commitment to fostering diversity and ensuring equal opportunities for men and women within the public sector.

Tunji-Ojo further disclosed that the services would release specific timelines for the recruitment process in due course, signalling a transparent and organized approach to implementing the new guidelines.
