The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) denied the hiring of individuals or groups as consultants for staff recruitment.

INEC said this in a statement by Mr. Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman of the Electoral Information and Education Committee in Abuja.

Okoye urged members of the public to report to security agencies, individuals or groups claiming to be consultants for the commission on staff recruitment.

He said that INEC’s attention had been drawn to the activities of certain fraudsters claiming to work for the Commission on Staffing.

He said unscrupulous elements had gone as far as cloning the INEC logo and started soliciting candidates for Commission jobs.

“The fraudsters claim that they have been appointed consultants to the Commission and are asking innocent Nigerians to pay a sum of money as application fees. “

Okoye recalled that the commission had at least twice in recent months issued warnings on the issue of bogus job dealers.

He added that INEC issued disclaimers on racketeers who opened bogus employment websites, collected money from unsuspecting members of the public and issued bogus employment letters claiming act on behalf of the Commission.

“The claim to be appointed consultants clearly adds a new dimension to the bogus employment scam.

“The general public should take note that not only is the Commission not recruiting at the moment; he has not appointed any consultant or agency to recruit on his behalf.

“The Commission calls on members of the public to be careful and not be fooled by fraudsters. Anyone approached by an individual

“The Commission calls on members of the public to be careful and not be fooled by fraudsters.

“Anyone approached by an individual or group claiming to recruit for the Commission should report to the security agencies,” he said. (NOPE)
