We are not recruiting, NIS warn
The Acting Comptroller General of Nigerian Immigration Service, Isah Jere Idris has cautioned the general public to disregard the recent public notices circulating in some social media platforms announcing a general recruitment/replacement exercise into the Service.
He gave the warning in a statement signed by the Service Public Relations Officer, Amos Okpu, an Assistant Comptroller of Immigration describing the publication as a grand design by some fraudulent persons who are seeking to deceive and exploit unsuspecting members of the public into parting with their hard-earned resources for non-existent vacancies. “Apart from the fact that the entire publication is a product of very poor conception, the portal indicated for application is strange to decency. Suffice it be stated clearly that the Service is currently not undertaking any recruitment exercise whatsoever and so the public is hereby advised to ignore any such publications.
“The acting Comptroller General therefore wishes to use this opportunity to enjoin members of the public to avoid falling into the antics of fraudulent job merchants who are out there to deceive them with empty promises of job placement into the Service. He stressed that the Service has always used all the conventional and notable social media means including its website to announce recruitment exercises rather than the pedestrian approach used by the authors of the deceitful recruitment notices.
“He assured that efforts are ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications with the aim of bringing them to justice.” He stated in the statement.
