Directorate of Technical Aid Corps (TAC), Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abuja, invites applications from suitably qualified candidates for the recruitment into the Nigerian Aid Corps Scheme for the 2012/14 Biennium.

Technical Aid Corps scheme is a viable volunteer programme operated by an African Country Across (ACP) countries. From independence, aid and technical assistance have been at the core of Nigeria’s foreign policy objectives.

TAC began in nineteen eighty seven to complement direct financial aid from Nigeria to ACP countries through skills exchange towards strengthening international understanding and cooperation.

The Federal Govt. of Nigeria in nineteen eighty seven established the Nigerian Technical Aid Corps (NTAC) scheme as a foreign policy tool that would serve specific national interests.

The statute establishing the scheme - Decree 27 – was signed into a law on twenty two January nineteen ninety three and officially documented on five May nineteen ninety three, thus giving it a legal backing and framework.

As an instrument of Nigeria’s foreign policy, the TAC programme is an alternative to direct financial aid for African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) nations.

It is designed, not only to provide manpower assistance in all fields of human endeavour, but to also represent a practical demonstration of South-South cooperation. (South-South refers to underdeveloped and developing countries in the southern hemisphere).

Key objectives of the scheme are:
  • Sharing Nigeria’s know-how and expertise with other ACP countries
  • Giving assistance on the basis of assessed and perceived needs of recipient countries
  • Promoting cooperation and understanding between Nigeria and recipient countries
  • Facilitating meaningful contact between youths of Nigeria and those of recipient countries
  • Complementing other forms of assistance to ACP countries
  • Ensuring a streamlined programme of assistance to other developing countries
  • Acting as a channel through which South-South collaboration is enhanced
  • Establishing a presence in countries which, for economic reasons, Nigeria has no resident diplomatic mission.
