We Are Not Recruiting – NOUN Debunks Reports

The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has debunked a recruitment report.

NOUN says it does not employ staff without following the necessary steps for recruitment in a federal organisation.

The institution’s director, Media and Publicity Ibrahim Sheme, made this known in a statement while reacting to some fake recruitment alerts on some websites.

Sheme urged Nigerians not to fall prey to scammers.

“The Management of NOUN wishes to inform the general public that the University is not recruiting anyone and that the story uploaded by the two websites is false.

“It is easy to see through the fabrication carried by both websites in order to deceive the unsuspecting members of the general public,” Sheme said.

Sheme said this type of deception is a familiar stock in trade of the dubious websites that scheme to achieve maximum hits and promote their business.

“They use the names of reputable institutions such as NOUN to exploit the sensibilities of job seekers,”  he said adding that the university had cause to warn the public about such scammers at least twice in the recent past, including in June 2020 when a similar false alarm was circulated by an obscure website.

“We are, however, dismayed to see that the purveyors of falsehood on social media are not resting on their oars in their attempt to scam millions of Nigerians,” he said.
