SEC Denies Conducting Recruitment Exercise
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has denied conducting any recruitment exercise as being speculated by some persons.
In a statement issued on Monday, the agency said this clarification was to debunk the video circulating in the social media, alleging that its acting Director General, Ms Mary Uduk, favoured those from her state, Anambra, during a recruitment exercise.
“Securities and Exchange Commission’s attention has been drawn to some messages and a video being circulated in the social media, wherein the commission was alleged to have carried out a recruitment exercise where 811 persons were employed, all from Anambra State with 1 from Kano State.
“The messages parade the person shown in the video as Ms Mary Uduk, the Acting Director General of the Commission.
“The commission, therefore, wishes to inform the general public that the person shown in the video is not the Acting Director General of SEC, and no such recruitment exercise was conducted,” the statement issued by spokesperson of the agency, Mrs Efe Ebelo, stated.
The statement further said, “For the avoidance of any doubt, since the Acting DG assumed office, the commission has not carried out any recruitment exercise.
“The general public is, therefore, advised to disregard the messages and video being circulated as they are false.”
