Abuja – The Federal Government has redirected applicants on a new Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRISIN) Employment Portal to be used for the recruitment application.
Dr Anthony Uwa, the Head of BRISIN Implementation told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Tuesday in Abuja that it had become necessary following the difficulty applicants encountered using the previous portal.
Uwa said the difficulties were as a result of some technical issues which would soon be resolved.
He said applicants who had started the application process should not be alarmed as they would be able to complete the exercise using the new portal.
He urged applicants that rather than using the previous www.brisin.gov.ng used for the exercise, they should use www.brisin.ng.
“Please be informed that the brisin recruitment registration which before now has been on www.brisin.gov.ng is being re-channelled to www.brisin.ng which is the BRISIN Employment Data Base portal.
“The reason is that BRISIN is building the first comprehensive data base to include both employed and unemployed with job identifications and verifications.
“For this reason, www.brisin.gov.ng cannot be used for the recruitment as there has been a little technical break which is being rectified and will be back soon.
“The www.brisin.gov.ng will continue its role on information to public on the importance and benefit of BRISIN to Nigeria and its citizens.
“We apologiae for the inconveniences this delay could have caused applicants,” Uwaleke said.
NAN reports that BRISIN is an integrated system for the collection, storage and distribution of information to support the management of the economy.
The Federal Government recently opened the portal for the recruitment of 5,000 unemployed Nigerians in the FCT in the pilot phase to drive the implementation of the scheme.
