The Nigeria Export Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA) has disclaimed an online recruitment exercise associated with it as its 2021 Recruitment Exercise.
Reacting to the online recruitment exercise on Thursday in Abuja, Mr Adesoji Adesugba, NEPZA’s Managing Director, described it as a criminal act to defraud job seekers.
In a statement issued by Mr Martins Odeh, Head, Corporate Communications, NEPZA, Mr Adesugba said that the exercise by the online outfit using the domain name www.careersafrika.com was fake.
He said that NEPZA had not contemplated any recruitment exercise yet, adding that the authority had not also overtly or covertly engaged any recruitment firm to conduct recruitment on its behalf.
“This advertorial is, therefore, a calculated falsehood tailored along strategies usually deployed by Yahoo Yahoo guys or internet fraudsters to devour earnings of unsuspecting victims.
“The management wishes to advise the general public to discountenance this criminal act and misinformation published by www.careersafrika.com and its affiliates.
“As the action remains in bad taste for probity, transparency and due process that the Authority strives to attain.
“NEPZA is an agency of government with respect to standards and due process as it works tirelessly to actualise the Federal Government’s vision of industrialising the nation using free trade zone scheme,’’ Mr Adesugba said.
He said that the agency was resolute in carrying out its statutory mandate and this included a possible legal action against managers of the aforementioned portal and its affiliates if the fake NEPZA recruitment advertorial was not brought down immediately.
“We shall proceed and take necessary steps to work with the security agencies to hunt and prosecute the scoundrels who are using the name of the authority to commit such heinous crimes and to defraud Nigerians rightfully wishing to serve their fatherland,” Mr Adesugba said.
