The management of the Nigeria Customs Services has disclosed that there is no recruitment exercise going on in its service.
This was made known via a post on its X, formerly Twitter handle on Saturday morning.
This warning may not be unconnected with the fake recruitment adverts place on social media.
The service noted that it would notify the general public through its appropriate channels once the recruitment exercise commences.
It wrote, “Nigeria Customs Service would like to inform you that there is no recruitment at the moment. Please be informed that once the recruitment process commences you will be updated via our official communication channels.”
Several posts on social media in the recent past had claimed NCS was recruiting.
One post on NCS Facebook page, dated 12th of April 2023, read, ‘Nigeria Customs Service recruitment 2023 portal is currently open for online applications’.
The post stated that the page will “outline the necessary guidelines that will increase your chances of being recruited in the 2023 NCS recruitment exercise”, and shares a phone number that is meant to help with this.
Meanwhile, the public relations officer for the NCS, Abdullahi Maiwada, debunked the reports during a chat with newsmen noting that the post was “fake and should be disregarded”.
“The notice is the handiwork of unscrupulous elements and an attempt to defraud Nigerians. Customs is currently not recruiting and if it is doing so, it will be on the official website only,” he said.
