Secretary to the Government of the Federal (SGF), Boss Mustapha has alerted the public of fraudsters requesting for Curriculum Vitae for appointment into non-existing government parastatal agencies.
The warning was contained in a statement made available on Tuesday by Willie Bassey Director Information, office of the SGF.
“The attention of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has been drawn to false information circulating on the social media through emails, text messages and other outlets urging members of the public to submit their Curriculum Vitae at a fee, to a non-existing desk at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, to facilitate their selection for various federal government appointments,” the statement reads.
The SGF has also observed, with dismay, that such fraudsters have become so desperate to such an extent that they resort to sending fake advertisements for supply of some medical diagnostic equipment to his Office.
Mustapha advised the public to disregard such information stressing that “the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has no such mandate and has never requested for such information nor does it advertise for the procurement of medical diagnostic equipment of any sort.”
The SGF warned originators of such fraudulent requests to desist forthwith from using his Office to fleece unsuspecting members of the public or face the wrath of the law.
