Update On Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Recruitment

We Are Not Recruiting – NNPC

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has once again called on members of the public to disregard any announcement of recruitment or invitation to recruitment interview as it is not carrying out any recruitment exercise at the moment.

The disclaimer, the third in recent times, is coming on the heels of recurrent fraudulent vacancy announcements on various social media platforms purporting to have emanated from the Corporation.

“We are constrained to announce, once again, that NNPC is not recruiting at the moment. Members of the public are, therefore, advised to disregard any vacancy announcement on any online or social media platform as they are  the handiwork of fraudsters intent on fleecing innocent Nigerians”, the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu stated.

Shedding more light on the method of operation of the fake job syndicate, the NNPC explained that the group deploys various means ranging from text messages, vacancy announcement on social media platforms and forged letters inviting gullible job seekers for non-existing job interviews with a view to extorting money from them.

“To this end, we wish to once again appeal to members of the public, particularly unsuspecting applicants, to be wary of fraudulent vacancy announcements or invitations for job interviews at the NNPC Towers. Anyone who entertains such invitations or deals with peddlers of such invitation does so at his or her own risk,’’ the NNPC stated.

The Corporation advised that anyone contacted for the purpose of the purported recruitment other than through advertisement duly placed by the Corporation in national newspapers, should not hesitate to report such invitations to relevant law enforcement agencies. It also pledged to continue to report and engage security agencies on such matters.

The statement further emphasized the determination of the NNPC Management under the leadership of Dr. Maikanti Baru to sustain the prevailing gale of transparency and accountability which has witnessed the conduct of open public bidding in sourcing for contractors and suppliers of goods and services for its day-to-day operations, including recruitment exercises.
