- Some people were said to have been defrauding unsuspecting applicants who seek admission into the school
- Leo Musa, the acting director of the nursing department, Health and Human Services Secretariat (HHSS) of the FCTA, said the sale of the school of nursing has not been announced
The Federal Capital Territorial Administration (FCTA) has described as fraud, the ongoing 2020/2021 sales of the School of Nursing, Gwagwalada, forms on the internet by some fraudsters.
The Nation reports that the acting director of the nursing department, Health and Human Services Secretariat (HHSS) of the FCTA, Leo Musa, stated this at a news conference on Friday, June 12, in Abuja.
Legit.ng gathered that Musa said the attention of the management of the department of nursing, HHSS, was drawn to the ongoing advert and sale of forms in various media on the internet.
She said that reports had been coming to the department from many people about the sales of this form, stressing that the school of nursing Gwagwalada has not started the sales of any form.
“We don’t have anything of such for now, we want to draw the attention of the public to this, anyone dealing with such fraudsters on the internet does so at their own risk.
“As a secretariat, we have not received any approval for such, with the COVID-19 on the ground and with the rules of the Federal Government about the virus, we are not ready to go against it.
“We have written a disclaimer on the site, we know it belongs to the school, but yet, reports are still coming to us about the sales of this form,” Musa said.
She added that the forms would not be sold until the COVID-19 was over.
Musa noted that the school management attention was drawn to the fact that people have been going there to notify it of the form they have already bought.
She said that a letter to this effect has been forwarded to the permanent secretary, Federal Capital Territory through the acting secretary of the HHSS, Mohammed Kawu, to see what could be done on the issue.
She added that suggestions had also be given on the issue, for it to be handed to the security department to help trace the fraudsters, who were already using different accounts on the internet to defraud people. (NAN)
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) expressed dissatisfaction with the court’s vacation of an interim forfeiture order regarding some assets traced to a former aviation minister, Stella Oduah.
It was reported that Justice Inyang Ekwo of a federal high court, Abuja, had struck out EFCC’s affidavit in support of the forfeiture order on the grounds that it was “filed out of time without first seeking the court’s leave for an extension of time to file.”
