"The Attention of the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) has been drawn to the fake reports and claims by some fraudulent individuals that we are currently recruiting.

"We wish to clarify that: NMDPRA is not recruiting at this time. Secondly, NMDPRA will not demand payment in any form for any job placement; anyone contacted for the purpose of any recruitment should not hesitate to contact the relevant law enforcement agencies."
NMDPRA further stressed that it will never carry out any recruitment exercise without getting approval.
"For the avoidance of doubt, the NMDPRA will never carry out any recruitment exercise without recourse to stipulated rules and guidelines of the Public Service Rules and Federal Character Commission."
