PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria – The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC has said it is not recruiting any staff contrary to what is circulating in the social media.
The NDDC made the clarification following false information in the social media. In a statement, the commission the purported advertorial remains the handiwork of dubious individuals impersonating the commission.
“The attention of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has been drawn to fake social media accounts being used to deceive members of the public, claiming that NDDC is recruiting staff.
“One of such accounts currently trending online is inviting “Interested and Eligible APPLICANTS Who Are Willing to Apply for The Recruitment to Visit the Application Form Portal 2022: https://nddc.govservice.site/.”
“We wish to alert members of the public to this fraudulent activity by some dubious individuals who impersonate the Commission’s Social Media Accounts.
“Those behind this criminal activity claim that “the NDDC has Launched Its Recruitment Portal and Is Calling on Suitably Qualified Candidates to Apply for the 2022 Recruitment Exercise”, spokesperson of the NDDC, Dr. Ibitoye Abosede said in a statement.
“It is obvious that the scammers are using the name and logo of the NDDC to defraud members of the public.
“Clearly, the Online Accounts were created for the purpose of duping unsuspecting members of the public and in the process, bringing the NDDC and its Management to disrepute. The security agencies have been alerted to investigate and bring the criminals to justice.
“We advise those who have genuine businesses with NDDC to always cross check facts at the Commission’s official website: (www.nddc.gov.ng) and other social media handles.
“Anyone claiming to represent the NDDC or its Management in fraudulent recruitment announcements must be treated as a criminal and reported to security agencies for appropriate sanctions”, the NDDC said.
