Insurance fund wary of fraudsters

27 June 2014, 10:11

Abuja - The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) has warned the public to be wary of fraudsters who are using the name of the agency to swindle job seekers.

The agency said its attention had been drawn to the activities of scammers using the internet and other social media platforms to swindle job seekers with promises of fake job vacancies in the agency.

NSITF, in a statement, frowned at this act and dissociated itself from the activities of the scammers.

The agency also warned the public to disregard individuals requesting for money or any form of gratification in exchange for job opportunities in the agency, insisting that it employed strictly based on competence.

Meanwhile, NSITF Board Chairman, Dr Ngozi Olejeme, specifically said she was repositioning the agency in line with the provision of the Act establishing it.

She explained that in order to actualize the agency's mandate, it is restructuring the organization and also re-engineering its current workforce to reflect the objective of the Scheme.

Olejeme hinted that the efforts to reposition NSITF was in pursuance of the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan.

"No stone will be left unturned to ensure that the agency measures up to global standards," she said.
