The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has debunked a recruitment advertisement currently trending on social media.
In a statement by the Group General Manger, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, the corporation called on unsuspecting members of the public to be wary of the scam.
“The advertisement, set in NNPC’s corporate colour with its logo, invites candidates with background in Sciences, Engineering, Business/Finance, Social Sciences, Arts/Humanities as well as Medical/Health Sciences to apply, giving required educational attainments of prospects to include: Master’s degree, Bachelor’s degree, Higher National Diploma (HND) and National Diploma”, the statement reads in part.
NNPC also advised members of the public to disregard any announcement of recruitment or invitation to recruitment interview appearing in the social media, stressing that the corporation is not carrying out any recruitment exercise at the moment.
“The corporation reminds job seekers to note the antics of scammers who deploy such communication strategies as text messages, vacancy announcements on social media platforms as well as forged letters inviting job seekers for non-existing job interviews with a view to extorting money from them”, the statement reads.
NNPC however stated that it would, as usual, advertise vacancies in the corporation through the national dailies.
