“The attention of the FRSC has been drawn to publications misinforming the public about ongoing recruitment of personnel into the services of the Corps.
“This medium is to let the public know that FRSC is present, not recruiting nor is there any ongoing arrangement to that effect,’’ he said.
Kazeem reported the acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, admonishing applicants and the general public to disregard the fake and misleading publications, Vanguard added.
Biu said that the Corps operated an open system while recruiting new personnel into the service.
