The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC, has announced that it would not be doing any recruitment exercises or commemorating any milestones in the near future. The company’s response comes in the wake of viral online competition links alleging that the NNPC is holding an ‘Anniversary Event.’
NNPC has nothing to do with the alleged anniversary event contest, according to a statement written by the corporation’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Garba Muhammad.
He also advised members of the public to refuse to take part in the poll, which he described as a ruse.
According to him, “In the purported contest, unsuspecting participants are encouraged to carry out a survey by filling a questionnaire on their knowledge of the company with the eventual winner standing a chance of winning cash reward of up to eight thousand U.S. dollars.
“NNPC would like to again inform the public that the information circulating in the social media that NNPC was conducting recruitment was not true and the public should disregard it.
“The NNPC hereby reiterates that whenever it decides to conduct a recruitment exercise or send out information to the public, it will do so through authentic public communication channels, particularly the NNPC’s website.”
