DPR Recruitment Updates, Application Problems And Test Invite 2017

UPDATE: There are indications that DPR recruitment has been cancelled or concluded. A source told me expressly that those who will resume the job has been employed already. Confirmed but could also be untrue. I will update more details when I have one. Note however that the last one actually took 3 years so fingers crossed.

Other details:

The wait can be tiring but like I mentioned in my earlier updates, DPR recruitment can span 2 years as was experienced in 2010. Just be patient and we will give you updates soon as we have them. However note the following:



So new slightly confirmed information by friends who claim to know the in and out of DPR is that the recruitment has been cancelled or postponed indefinitely.

I saw this too on Nairaland and someone called my attention to it so I investigated. If you have more information, please share with us in the comment section. Thanks.


The below were information we had shared earlier (Check comments for discussions):

I have not verified this information but I am willing to share it with you guys nonetheless (The same way I was told). If and when I verify it, I will also mention it here.

1. If you have not received any confirmation from DPR, please be patient. I have confirmation that the number of applicants were too numerous, it is becoming too difficult to shortlist (DPR should just have limited the span of receiving the applications to a week).

2. If you received a temporary copy of invitation, kindly proceed to the test center if you are able to. Our belief is that this is a technical error.

3. If your application has not been confirmed, there was definitely an error while you were applying for the job or you applied for something you were not qualified to apply for.

4. We learnt that the new administration would be employing lots of graduates so make your exam count.

5. The error you are getting on your profile is a bug or its a mistake from your part. If you did input all the right information, then be patient.

6. Lastly, I believe those that are getting successful application responses and have written the 5 minute test are those whose details have been sorted out. Its in batches and once it gets to your turn and your profile is sorted out, you will be contacted.

If you have questions, please ask and you can subscribe for our updates with your emails.

  1. Concerning the the DPR stuff, after application, my dashboard shows 'no institution found'. Yet I have a temporary slip which they said I should not bring to the examination center. Please can I still go to the test center even if I do not get an invitation from them? Thanks

    1. Hi Bobos,
      A couple of reasons why its showing no institution recorded are; misspelt name of institution, not entering full name of institution or not recording the name at all. Unfortunately you are unable to edit that anymore.
      With regards to the temporary slip, the information I have as of now is that you should proceed to the exam nonetheless.. but that there is a high possibility that everything would be corrected before the exam itself.

  2. Hello,
    Please i would like to know which consulting firm is conducting the DPR test. Rumors is going round that it is Dragnet. Can i have confirmation from your angle? Time is fast approaching & i would like to start preparing. I will highly appreciate if you can confirm this to me. Thank you & God bless.

    1. My guess is if it were dragnet, the application process wouldn't be so problematic and unprofessional the way it did but unfortunately I do not have confirmation about who is conducting the test. My instincts believe its a private consultant but if I have info will update

  3. Thanks for the information. My own application status shows pending, successful submission. Do not come with this temporary slip to the examination hall. Come back later to print the permanent one. Since last year I havent gotten any update nor date for my examination. What can I do?
    Thanks

  4. Hi Adekunle,
    The only thing you can do at this point is to be patient.
    I assure you that as long as there were no mistakes or errors in your application, your issue would be rectified and you would be invited for the exam.

  5. Does DPR employ on merit?

    1. Big question. It was confirmed from a friend that Buhari has an eagle eye on this recruitment. He wants to ensure that it is on merit and that youths are actually the one who gets the job so yes it will be on merit.

      Delete
    2. Well, thanks for the response. However, I am positive there would be little or no consideration given to merit. I have lost confidence in the recruitment process in Nigeria. If you don't know anyone to pull strings for you, forget it. Except of course God just wants to bless you.

    3. I totally understand you Bobos. Its well. If you guys have any other request, you can make them

    4. Bobos pls don't loose hope, and I can authoritatively tell u DPR recruit on merit. Some of us can attest to that. The process can be long and tiring, giving no place for hoping at times but it surely will be worth it at d end. Search naija hot jobs.com and u will ve an idea wat the 2013 recruitment went tru but at d end we chat about it and all laugh. Keep d faith up bro

  8. hi, Thanks for the information.my issue is that after completing my application i noticed a different higher institution and course from what i entered initially.what is your take on this?

    ReplyDelete
  9. That is a big issue. When you are called to present your documentation it would be difficult. But lets wait. You may just be lucky to have the opportunity rectify during verification.

  12. Hello, please does this mean there is no specific date set for the DPR 5 minutes test yet?

    ReplyDelete
  13. No specific information. DPR has one of the most controversial recruitment ever.

    1. How do you mean controversial?

      Delete
    2. I mean it is one recruitment you may have to take your mind off until it comes. It caused a lot of public disagreement and negative media reports the last time they did recruitment too because applicants did not hear from them for like a year plus.
