The Federal Civil Service Commission has disowned a fake recruitment advert, currently trending on social media, credited to it.
Dr Mary Ogbe, Permanent Secretary in the commission, made this known in a statement on Friday in Abuja.
Ogbe said the fake recruitment advert titled “FCSC recruitment 2023/2024,” currently trending on social media, did not emanate from the commission.
“The management of the commission wishes to inform the general public that the purported recruitment exercise is falsehood entirety.
“The writer of this fake story, using his www.recruitmentfile.net to peddle his antics of misinforming the general public, particularly desperate job seekers, listed several steps/requirements for recruitment into the civil service.”
Ogbe reaffirmed the commission’s earlier disclaimer statement that the suspension/embargo on recruitment into the Federal Civil Service was yet to be lifted by the Government.
“In addition, the Commission has an established tradition of using the Television/Radio stations and Newspapers to announce such an instance of national exercise and not the social media.
“For clarification and emphasis, the general public is hereby informed that the advertised recruitment on social media is untrue and should therefore be ignored and disregarded, ” Ogbe said.
