The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has, for the umpteenth time, reiterated that it had not launched a recruitment campaign of any kind.

The latest clarification is coming on the heels of a fresh recruitment advert purportedly from the corporation, being circulated by e-mails and on various social media platforms.

A statement by the corporation’s spokesman, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu disclosed that the advert, which he said is on a fake letterhead complete with NNPC logo, is purportedly signed by the Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, and the Chief Operating Officer (Refineries), Mr. Anibor Kragha.

The fake advert directs unsuspecting applicants to send their applications to a fake e-mail address:

Ughamadu said that another form of the scam involved text messages, e-mails and letters inviting job seekers for fake job interviews at the NNPC Towers and other locations across the country with a view to extorting money from them.

He called on the public, especially applicants, to discountenance any of such adverts or spurious invitations for job interviews as the corporation was currently not recruiting, stressing that "anyone who entertains such invitations does so at his or her own risk."

Ughamadu advised that anyone contacted for the fake recruitment should not hesitate to report such invitations to relevant law enforcement agencies, adding that the corporation would continue to engage security agencies on the scam.

He said that NNPC would sustain the prevailing culture of transparency and accountability, which has witnessed the conduct of open public bidding in sourcing for contractors and suppliers of goods and services for its day-to-day operations.

He said the transparency would also moderate recruitment of staff, stressing that NNPC would advertise all vacant positions in national newspapers whenever it was ready to recruit. (NAN)
