While there are currently different vacancies being announced by the Federal and different state governments in Nigeria at the moment, it is important that we know what it takes to ensure that our applications get to the right place or that our applications is considered fit for the open positions and more importantly, that we are shortlisted for tests and or interviews.
The list is going to be very straightforward:

2. Original WAEC, NECO or GCE results.
3. Original means of identification i.e Voters card, Drivers license, Nigerian passport, National Id cards.
4. Certificate of origin from your state of origin.
5. Sometimes, a recommendation by your Oba or chief in your local government.
6. Sometimes, a report of your height and weight.
7. Sometimes, a certification from a hospital that has considered you fit and healthy. Heart, eyes etc.
