The website of the agency had crashed just hours after it was opened for the commencement of a recruitment exercise.

The site has been showing ‘500 internal server errors’.

NDLEA’s spokesman, Femi Babafemi, said the glitches experienced were due to the huge number of applicants trying to access the platform at the same time.

“Barely hours after the online application portal was opened on Sunday 12th March, it began to experience glitches due to the heavy traffic of over 200,000 applicants trying to access the system. To resolve this, the Agency upgraded the infrastructure on Tuesday 14th March to accommodate the large volume of applicants after over 53,170 applicants had successfully logged into the portal.

“At the moment, the system is synchronizing the data at the back-end of the infrastructure in order to adjust to the server upgrade.

“The Agency’s management therefore wishes to apologise to the applicants for the hitches being experienced and urge them to exercise patience while the system completes synchronisation to serve them better,” Babafemi said
