Ministry of Labour Denies Collecting CV for Employment


The federal ministry of labour and employment has debunk reports that it has been tasked with responsibility to begin receiving curriculum vitae (CV) for immediate employment, warning unemployed Nigerians to be wary of being duped.

The ministry in a statement by the deputy director, press, Olowookere Samuel, said, “The attention of the minister of labour and employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has been drawn to an online publication requesting unemployed Nigerian youths to submit application for employment at the federal ministry of labour and employment headquarter and zonal offices nationwide.”

An announcement that the federal government of Nigeria has directed the federal ministry of labour and employment to start receiving CV’s massively nationwide from graduates for employment in 2016 has been trending online.

But the labour ministry urged the general public to disregard this false directive as it did not emanate from the federal government through the federal ministry of labour and employment.

The statement added, “In view of the apprehension the above false information has generated it is pertinent to point out that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, is committed to the creation of decent employment opportunities for teeming unemployed Nigerians and has perfected plans for massive job creation through well thought out programmes such as Graduate Teachers Conversion Programme, Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), Vocational Skills Acquisition and Upgrading, Conditional Cash Transfers (CCT) for the vulnerable persons including market women.”

He explained that the general public would be informed in due course when any of this programmes/schemes would take off.

“The public is hereby warned to disregard the said online publication as any person who does otherwise do so at his or her own risk especially when some of the websites have been requesting applicants to pay what they dubbed “application fees”.
