Comptroller-General, Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr. David Parradang, has urged Nigerians seeking employment into the service to disregard money-for-job offers by individuals, saying they are scams.
This was contained in a statement by Mr. Chukwuemeka Obua, the service Public Relations Officer and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Saturday.
The statement said many criminal elements were currently using fake websites and social media accounts to defraud unsuspecting members of the public, seeking enlistment into the NIS.
It said the criminal elements used the fake sites to pose as the Comptroller-General and the PRO of the service to offer job placements to unsuspecting members of the public.
“The Comptroller-General wishes to advise members of the public to disregard any such money-for-job offers on the fake website and social media platforms”.
It said the ongoing recruitment as being handled by the Presidential Committee, set up to assist in the conduct of 2015 Immigration recruitment, would be fair and transparent.
The statement said the website address for the recruitment is www.fedcivilservice.gov.ng while the official website of the NIS is www.immigration.gov.ng. (NAN)
