The Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has called on unsuspecting job applicants to desist from persons parading themselves as their recruitment agent, saying ongoing text messages by some elements are mere fraud.
FAAN issued the warning following reports of suspected fraudsters who claim to give jobs at the Authority for a certain amount.
A text posted by FAAN shows that the suspected fraudsters call their targets with a number claiming to be the Director of FAAN.
FAAN said the caller would claim that the Authority was doing a replacement of some workers at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos.
According to FAAN, if their target shows interest, the victim would be referred to another contact who would in turn claim to be the permanent secretary of FAAN.
FAAN said, “For the purpose of clarity and emphasis, the Authority is not embarking on any recruitment exercise at the moment.
“The Authority wishes to inform the public that recruitment into any government agency has a stipulated procedure, which includes advertisements in national dailies, in line with the provisions of the Federal Government’s conditions of service.”
