21 February 2016, Abuja – The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has warned the public to disregard any invitation on recruitment exercise. The warning is contained in a statement issued by Mr Ohi Alegbe, the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, on Sunday in Abuja.
The statement quoted Alegbe as cautioning the public to be wary of fraudsters sending letters to unsuspecting individuals inviting them for “the second process of recruitment.”
He said the invitation was a scam as the corporation was currently not recruiting. He, therefore, urged the public to discountenanced the invitation directing recipients to pay N21,500 into an account with Zenith Bank, saying “anyone who entertains such invitations or deals with peddlers of such invitations does so at his or her own risk.”
He also urged anyone contacted for the purpose of the purported recruitment by the Corporation to report such person or persons to relevant law enforcement agencies.
