Lagos – The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has advised job seekers not to respond to false recruitment adverts purportedly placed online by the commission.
Mr Tony Ojobo, the Director (Public Affairs) of the Commission, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Thursday.
He said that the attention of the regulatory body had been drawn to a recruitment advert placed on a Website known as joblistnigeria.com.
Ojobo said that the advert had called for applications from qualified persons to fill positions in of economists, accountants, lawyers and project managers in the commission.
“The commission wholly disassociates itself from this publication.
“For the avoidance of doubt, our recruitment are usually advertised on the commission’s Website and in the national dailies,’’ he said.
Ojobo advised job seekers to ignore such adverts.
“Anyone who patronises this Website and its publication does so at his or her own risk.
“The commission shall not take any responsibility for persons who fall prey to this scam,’’ he said.
He, however, called on security agencies to assist in fishing out characters behind the advert.
Ojobo said that the telecom umpire had not made any effort to identify those behind the Website as it was not its duty to do so.
