The management of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has debunked the viral reports that it is currently recruiting members of staff for the body.
In a statement obtained by InsideMainland, the management of WAEC stated that “there is no recruitment exercise currently going on or being carried out by WAEC Nigeria.”
While distancing itself from the purported advertisement which is currently trending on Facebook and other social media platforms, WAEC Nigeria said; “The advertisement did not emanate from us neither did we authorize any agent to do so on our behalf.
“The advertisement on the so-called recruitment exercise is simply the handi-work of fraudsters who are out to dupe gullible and unsuspecting job seekers and members of the general public.
“WAEC is a reputable and structured organisation that operates in accordance with time-tested norms and prescribed procedures, whose hallmarks are integrity, transparency and openness. Therefore, whenever there is need and capacity for any recruitment exercise, the general public would be duly informed through reputable media channels.”
Advising applicants of the fake recruitment exercise, WAEC Nigeria said “applicants and the genral public are herby advised to disregard the purported advertisement and avoid falling into the hands of scammers who are out to make money from gullible and undiscerning individuals.”
