NNPC denies advertisement for job interviews

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says it  has neither published any advertisement on job interviews nor embarked on  any recruitment of workers.

The clarification followed a fresh recruitment advertisement purportedly placed by the corporation now in circulation on  the social media.

A statement by NNPC spokesman, Mr Ndu Ughamadu, said the advert on a fake letterhead with NNPC logo, was allegedly signed by the Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru, and the Chief Operating Officer, Refineries, Mr. Anibor Kragha.

Ughamadu said the purported advert had directed unsuspecting applicants to send their applications to a fake e-mail address: [email protected].

According to him, another form of the scam is the circulation of text messages, e-mails and letters inviting gullible job seekers for fake job interviews at the NNPC Towers and other locations.

The spokesman said the purported job interview invitation was  designed to extort money from desperate job seekers.

He advises  the public, especially applicants, to disregard such adverts or spurious invitations for job interviews, saying that anyone who entertains such invitations does so at his or her own risk.

According to him, anyone contacted for the purpose of the fake recruitment should report such invitations to relevant law enforcement agencies.

Ughamadu  said that the corporation would  continue to engage security agencies to tackle the ongoing scam and the perpetrators.

He assured the public  that  Dr. Maikanti Baru-led NNPC management would sustain the prevailing culture of transparency and accountability.

He added that the wave of transparency in the corporation had yielded positive results, including  the conduct of open public bidding to source for contractors and suppliers of goods and services.

Ughamadu noted that  the corporation’s previous recruitments had been conducted  transparently, assuring that NNPC would always advertise all vacant positions in national newspapers ahead of any  recruitment.
