The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), is neither recruiting nor replacing staff, the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, said in in Abuja on Wednesday.
Oyeyemi advised Nigerians to disregard rumours that the corps was embarking on any such exercise.
He said the rumour must have been started by fraudsters who were out to extort innocent job seekers.
The corps marshal assured Nigerians that the FRSC, in collaboration with other security agencies, was on the trail of the criminal elements, who were out to swindle Nigerians under the guise that the establishment was recruiting.
“Contrary to reports making the rounds that the FRSC is conducting a fresh recruitment and replacement exercises, and has dispatched recruitment forms to the states for interested candidates to apply. I declare that this is not true.
“This is not true; so, I call on Nigerians to disregard the information that the Corps is recruiting or doing a replacement.
“I urge you to be wary of the activities of fraudsters who are parading themselves as agents to extort money from innocent job-seekers,’’ he said.
According to him, the activities of the fraudsters are being investigated by relevant authorities.
Oyeyemi assured that the public would be fully informed officially the moment the Federal Government approved such recruitment or replacement.
“No government agency recruits without due approval; it is equally a standard practice for recruitment exercises to be advertised on radio, television, and through the print media,” he said.
Oyeyemi said that proper screening was part of the procedure for recruitment or replacement, and would not be bypassed during such exercises.
According to him, when the Corps is recruiting, information on such is readily made available through official platforms such as www.frsc.gov.ng, ww.fb.com/federalroadsafetycorps or @FRSCNigeria on Twitter.
He said that the Corps could be reached through a toll-free line 122 or 070022553772, 08077690055 and 08077690397 for any confirmation or clarification on recruitment and other matters concerning the organisation.
