We are not recruiting now – NNPC warns members of public
The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has warned the general public, to disregard any announcement of recruitment or invitation to its interview.
The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, said this in a statement in Abuja on Friday.
Ughamadu stated that this announcement was necessary, because of the recurrent fraudulent adverts on various social media platforms.
“We are constrained to announce, once again, that NNPC is not recruiting at the moment. Members of the public are, therefore, advised to disregard any vacancy announcement on any online or social media platform, as they are the handiwork of fraudsters intent on fleecing innocent Nigerians,” he said.
Ughamadu revealed the syndicate’s method of operation, range from text messages to forged letters, inviting gullible job seekers for non-existing job interviews to extort money from them.
“To this end, we wish to once again appeal to members of the public, particularly unsuspecting applicants, to be wary of fraudulent vacancy announcements or invitations for job interviews at the NNPC Towers.
“Anyone who entertains such invitations or deals with peddlers of such invitation does so at his or her own risk,” the spokesperson reiterated.
