The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied hiring individuals or groups as consultants for staff recruitment.
Mr Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, said this in a statement in Abuja,”
“The fraudsters claim that they have been appointed consultants to the Commission and are reportedly asking innocent Nigerians to pay some amount of money as application fees.
“The claim of being appointed consultants clearly adds a new dimension to the fake employment scam.
“The general public should take note that not only is the Commission not recruiting at the moment; it has not appointed any consultant or agency to recruit on its behalf.
“The Commission calls on members of the public to be cautious and not allow themselves to be hoodwinked by fraudsters,” he said.
