The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday stated that it was presently not recruiting and warned members of the public to disregard any publication or invitation in that regard purportedly emanating from the Corporation.
In a statement by its spokesman, Ohi Alegbe, the NNPC called on members of the public to be wary of fraudsters sending letters to unsuspecting individuals inviting them for “the second process of recruitment” purportedly billed to hold on 29th February, 2016, insisting that it is currently not recruiting.
The Corporation further explained in the statement that “the scam invitation letters which direct recipients to pay the sum of N21,500 into a certain account number with Zenith Bank purportedly for “onshore and offshore/training kits/materials should be discountenanced.”
Stressing that such letters where not sent by the corporation, the NNPC warned that “anyone who entertains such invitations or deals with peddlers of such invitations does so at his or her own risk.”
The Corporation further urged anyone contacted for the purpose of the purported recruitment to report such persons to relevant law enforcement agencies.
