Minister of Interior reacts to Nigerian Immigration Service employment test tragedy.

In a shocking act of insensitivity to the plight of millions of unemployed youths in Nigeria and the grieving family members of the deceased, Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro said they died as a result of their impatience.
"The applicants lost their lives due to impatience; they did not follow the laid down procedures spelt out to them before the exercise. Many of them jumped through the fences of affected centres and did not conduct themselves in an orderly manner to make the exercise a smooth one. This caused stampede and made the environment unsecured."

9 job seekers, reportedly, lost their lives in a stampede saturday during a recruitment test carried out at selected zonal centres across the nation. The deaths occurred in Abuja, Lagos and Minna

According to information going around, below are the numbers of applicants from each state of Nigeria that applied for the Nigerian Immigration Service jobs:

TOTAL: 1,254,959
Candidates Participated=1, 254, 959 X
N1, 000 (Recruitment fees). Total
Amount =N1, 254,959,000.( One
billion, two hundred and fifty-four million, nine
hundred and fifty-nine thousand naira).

But the minister has contradicted the number of applicants that participated in the employment test. He says that only 520,000 participated and only 4,556 would be recruited. 520,000 x1,000 =?
