Abuja – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has
challenged security agencies and the telecommunications service providers to
bring to book scammers that have been defrauding Nigerians through non-existent
jobs in a defunct APC Screening Committee.
National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the
call has become necessary because the scammers have persisted in their
fraudulent ways, despite previous warnings by the party for them to desist.
“These ‘419ners’ have a telephone number, 08107400745, an
and a front (Dr. Favour Idiodie), who is supposedly the Screening Committee
Secretary. It should therefore not be difficult for the security agencies,
working with the service providers, to fish them out and to make them face the
full wrath of the law,” Mohammed said.
He repeated the party’s earlier warning, contained in a
statement issued recently that Nigerians must be aware of such fraudulent
The party has not set up any committee to which Nigerians
should submit their CVs for screening and possible federal appointments, Metuh
“As we wrote in our earlier statement, even when it is
obvious that those behind this appointment scam are merely seeking to swindle
innocent Nigerians, some desperate and gullible persons may still fall prey to
their evil machinations, hence we have decided to once again alert Nigerians,”
the APC spokesman said.
He said any information concerning appointments into federal
posts would be duly communicated to Nigerians at the appropriate time through
the usual communication channels.
