The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Thursday distanced itself from advertisements calling for applications.
The adverts, gaining ground on social media, claim there are positions to fill in the Engineering Department of the National Engineering and Technical Company (NETCO).
In a statement in by the NNPC spokesman, Ndu Ughamadu, NETCO, an upstream subsidiary of the corporation, is not recruiting.
”Neither NNPC nor NETCO is responsible for the said advert. We call on members of the public to be wary of the activities of scammers as the corporation is currently not recruiting.
”Anyone who entertains such invitations does so at his or her own risk,” Ughamadu said.
He advised anyone contacted for the purpose of the fake recruitment to report to relevant law enforcement agencies while the NNPC, on its part, tries to bring the scammers to book.
