Kayode FayemiGovernor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has expressed sadness over the death of some Nigerian youths at the recruitment exercise conducted by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) on Saturday.

The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, described the death of the applicants as a “tragedy of unimaginable proportion that has created wounds in the hearts of all Nigerians”.

Describing the tragedy as “avoidable”, Governor Fayemi called for a thorough probe to unravel the immediate and remote causes of the incident with a view to preventing a reoccurrence.

The governor, was of the opinion that a better organisation of the recruitment exercise would have prevented the death of the applicants many of whom were made to go through very inhuman condition in their quest for the job.

Fayemi said: “This latest tragedy has thrown up some questions that the concerned authorities must answer to prevent a repeat of this unfortunate incident.

“Are the authorities concerned not aware of the magnitude of the number of the applicants, what were the modalities put in place to conduct the exercise for such a huge number of applicants? Why can’t the exercise be conducted in batches instead of attending to the army of applicants in one day?

“These and more questions come to mind when coming to terms with the loss of these young ones who had bright future ahead of them only to be wasted in such curious circumstances”.

He also commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives in the tragedy.
