The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) debunks gossips that the Corps was engaging in an undisclosed recruitment and replacement exercise.
Public Relations Officer of the Corps, Mr Emmanuel Okeh made this statement in Abuja, acknowledging that the Commandant-General (CG) of the Corps, Mr Abdullahi Muhammadu had advised job searchers and the public to ignore the gossip.
Muhammadu believe that the false information came from swindlers so as to defraud innocent applicants of their money, stating further that a number of unemployed youth had attempted to register for the said recruitment exercise.
“And this has attracted some dubious individuals who have resorted to spreading false news and sending text messages to them on non-existing recruitment and replacement exercises,” he stated.
The Comptroller-General said the Corps would announce existing vacancies for any candidates to apply and this, according to him, would be done when the necessary financial provision is made available.
Muhammadu also said the ongoing documentation and data capturing exercise for personnel at the State Command was misinterpreted as recruitment and replacement by fraudsters, who decided to take advantage of it.
“That due to the forthcoming promotion exercise, the Corps is only issuing old letters of appointment and promotion to personnel who merited it.
“But for administrative reasons they were unable to receive their letters in the last exercise conducted and it is expedient for them to document at this point in time due to the forthcoming promotion exercise,” he maintained.
Muhammadu however enjoined willing applicants not to be in a haste as the Corps would make public the vacancies in national newspapers.
