- NECO has warned prospective job seekers against online recruitment scammers in Nigeria
- The council said that it is currently not recruiting staff as widely publicised online
- According to NECO, the council's leadership is on the same wavelength on the mantra of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari
The National Examinations Council (NECO) on Thursday, January 2, warned job seekers against recruitment scammers across Nigeria.
NECO urged the general public to disregard a recent online publication stating that the council was planning to recruit new staff.
A statement signed and released by the head, Information and public relations division, Azeez Sani, said it had no plan to recruit new staff.
“We also wish to state very strongly that the publication is the product of the imagination of fraudsters who are out to defraud unsuspecting members of the public,” Azeez said.
The NECO spokesperson said the acting registrar/chief executive of the council, Abubakar Mohammed Gana, and the Governing Board under Abubakar Saddiq Mohammed, were on the same wavelength on the mantra of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the duo are focused on epitomising transparency, adherence to due process, and zero tolerance for impunity within the council walls.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the government of Niger state said it had paid N200 million for NECO to release results of 30,000 in the state.
The state said the students' results were being withheld by the council for lack payment since they sat for the council's examination.
The state also said that it had paid more than N1 billion to various examination bodies in the last three years as part of efforts to provide free education to students in the state.
