Taraba State government has recruited about 2,000 people into its civil service.  

Aside from the employment, Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku also directed that application forms for the state housing estate be issued to the civil servants to enable them enroll on the housing loan scheme.
 
The governor, who said the newly employed civil servants deserve to own their houses, was hopeful that before attaining 15 years in service, they must have completed payments of the houses.
 
Handling out letters at the Jolly Nyame stadium located along Mile 6 in the Jalingo metropolis, Ishaku said his administration was committed to reducing the number of unemployed youths in the state.
 


Reiterating the determinations of his administration to revamp the state civil service, he said: “Since the creation of the state, there has never been an open exercise of massive employment like my administration. No administration in the history of this state has attempted what I have done to fill in the vacant positions and to avert collapse of the service.”
 
Chairman of the state’s Civil Service Commission (CSC), John Mamman, applauded the governor for “bringing in young and vibrant officers into the state civil service for continuity and effective service delivery.”
 
He said the screening and employment were done based on the principle of equal representation, reflecting state character as embedded in the Federal Character.
