We are not recruiting, NNPC warns Nigerians

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has warned the public to disregard any invitation on recruitment.

The warning is contained in a statement issued by Ohi Alegbe, the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the NNPC, 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 N2,500 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.”

Alegbe 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.
