The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has disassociated itself from scammers who pose as officials of the Corps to fleece unsuspecting job seekers their hard earned money.
Denying any recruitment going on in the agency, FRSC stated that their attention has been drawn to reports that the Corps has advertised and has started a fresh recruitment exercise.
In an official statement signed issued yesterday and signed by Bisi Kazeem, Corps Public Education Officer , FRSC, the safety organisation stated that a fake FRSC website has been created by some fraudsters in this regard to fleece unsuspecting applicants of their hard earned money.
It warned that the Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has therefore ordered that a public alert be given to innocent Nigerians to disregard the false information being peddled by the fraudsters in the social media.
Kazeem stated that the activities of the fraudsters are being investigated by relevant authorities, adding that the Corps is using this medium to clarify that FRSC is at the moment not conducting any form of recruitment and will make it a public knowledge through major newspapers and other relevant media whenever such recruitment exercise is to take place as already approved by the Federal Government.
Kazeem stated that the Corps Marshal clarified thus: “His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari has graciously given approval for the recruitment of qualified Nigerians into the services of the Corps, but the advertisement has not been made public yet.
“The Corps has established mechanisms to achieve a smooth exercise and these established processes are presently undergoing scrutiny to ensure a flawless and smooth exercise. When we are ready, the public will be properly informed through adverts in the national dailies”, Kazeem noted.
Kazeem therefore called on the general public to discountenance the current portal linked to the Corps and has been in circulation in the internet and other media platforms.
He further stressed that whenever the Corps is recruiting, information on such will be readily made available through their official platforms.
