IN SHORT: In the early months of 2023,the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) said it was not recruiting, but similar claims that it is have resurfaced online. These are not recruitment notices from the NCS and should be ignored.
One of the posts reads: “Nigeria custom service replacement form is going on.” It tells those interested or who know someone who wants to join the NCS to send a message on WhatsApp or call the number in the post.
