According to the CG, the recruitment exercised lingered until 2022 due to the emergence of Covid-19 and the need for proper vetting of candidates.

“Recruitment is a process and it is not easy to vet over one million (1,000,000) people as vetting is very fundamental to the process and takes a longer time.

“The vetting was environmental, institutional, and family-based,” he said.
