FG denies announcing recruitment into ministries, agencies


The Federal Civil Service Commission of Nigeria, FCSC, has debunked widespread report that it has announced a mass recruitment into some Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs.

Reports were rife on Thursday that the federal government has announced recruitment into
ministries including: the Ministry of Information, Ministry of Environment; Ministry of Justice; Ministry of Trade and Investments; and Bureau of Public Procurement.

The purported statement had directed all qualified Nigerians who currently hold OND, HND, BA/BSc to apply on the commission’s website.

But FCSC’s Deputy Director of Public Affairs, Dr Joel Oruche, told Nigerian Tribune on Thursday night the report was fake and did not emanate from his office.

But Oruche, said no such information was sent out from his office and urged Nigerians to discard it. Newsworth reports that as at press time, a check on the website through which applications can purportedly be submitted showed this message: “Error establishing a database connection”.
