The Rector, Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Engr. Dr Michael Arimanwa FNSE has categorically stated that the institution is not conducting any form of recruitment, warning members of the public not to be misled by racketeers whose stock-in-trade is to deceive and extort innocent people.
The Rector sounded this note of warning in a release, which he personally signed today, in order to alert the public on the nefarious activities of internet fraudsters who go about scamming desperate members of the public with a utopian promise of a job at the polytechnic, when indeed there is no such thing going on in the institution. The new method devised by these unscrupulous elements, according to the release, is to clone the social media accounts of public officers to offer fake jobs at a fee, warning the public to be wary of them.
In his words, the Rector further cautions: “I have only one Facebook account and I have not been requesting friendship, lately. Do not become a victim. If you are already friends with me on Facebook, kindly ignore any further invitation for friendship. If you are not already my friend on Facebook, please be diligent enough to confirm by phone call, SMS, Whatsapp or any other means that I am the one requesting friendship.”
Meanwhile, the Rector has asked security agencies to investigate those found culpable in cloning his Facebook account and seeking to defraud unsuspecting members of the public. Accordingly, the Poly boss has stated unequivocally that he neither sends friendship requests on Facebook nor demands money from anyone under any guise.
Moving forward, the Poly helmsman stated that that employment in the institution is purely by merit when the time comes, and no one pays any fee for it. He also added that people should avoid anyone, however close to him, who requests money from them in order to be favoured with a job slot, describing them as rogue elements.
