PHOTOS: Thousands Show Up For Nigerian Immigration Service Aptitude Test, Stampede Kills 10 In Abuja, 8 In Calaber 57
At least 10 job seekers  died today while many more sustained varying degrees of injury this morning during a stampede at the National Stadium, Abuja venue of the ongoing recruitment test by the Nigeria Immigrations Service (NIS).
Several thousands of job-seekers thronged the Abuja stadium to write the test but only one entrance to the 60,000-capacity stadium was made available. An applicant who turned back after seeing the crowd said there was no way the applicants would not have been more than 60,000.
At least 40 of those who were injured were admitted at the National Hospital in Abuja, while several others were referred to other hospitals due to lack of capacity to admit and treat all those injured.
8 people have been confirmed dead in calaber and i hear there are casualties in Lagos also. It’s a pity we live in a country where our leaders dont value us. Dont be surprised that those who will end up getting these jobs are busy relaxing at home. More pictures when you continue

    This is alarming!!! Millions of people just for a mere 3 thousand job slots in the immigration services. Are they all truly unemployed or just the typical human nature to want for a better condition even though some of those present might still have a job? Are there no other processes for short-listing candidates? The morons in charge of this recruitment process are brain dead!! Rumors say the applicants even paid N1000 each…never heard of paying money for a job that you don't have or for any job at all… don't tell me poverty causes ignorance! Nigerians cause their own wahala, I swear. A lot has to change.

      It's important to note that these applicants paid N1,000 application fee and there were over 2 million applicants…you do the calculation, that's about N2billion. We need the Minister of Interior and Comptroller General of Immigration to address what happened today

    Got the BC below from a friend, it , makes a nice read in light of our present predicament:

    Arise O' Sleeping Youth of Nigeria!

    Awolowo was (37), Akintola (36), Ahmadu Bello (36) Balewa (34) and Okotie-Eboh (27), Enahoro (27) led the struggle for independence after the death of Macaulay. Only Zik was 42 at the time.

    In 1966, the first coup was led by: Kaduna Nzeogwu (29) and countered by Murtala Mohammed (28), Theophilus Danjuma (28), Babangida (25), Nanven Garba (23), Sani Abacha (23), Shehu Musa Yaradua (23), and brought into power Gowon (32), Ojukwu (33), Obasanjo (29), Buhari (24).

    Most of the military administrators who governed the states under the successive military regimes, most of whom are governors now, were under 30 years.

    The brief democratic dispensation which interjected the military interregnums also saw the House of Representatives in particular populated by majority of members under 30 years as well as some senators.

    Under 30s were also not in short supply with appointments, we have examples of MT Mbu who became foreign affairs minister at 23 and Pat Utomi who became a presidential adviser at 27 and so on and so forth.

    NOW:

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still sleeping in 3 seater chairs in their parents’ homes?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still collecting pocket money from their parents?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still writing JAMB?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still sagging their trousers?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still searching for jobs?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today no longer qualified to even be leaders of youth wings of political parties?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today so docile?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still incapable of feeding itself?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today barred by law from even aspiring to certain political offices?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today incapacitated, unwilling, unable and incapable of asking questions?
