By Samuel Ohwovoriole

The National Lottery Regulatory Commission, (NLRC) has warned Nigerians to beware of internet fraudstars claiming to be recruitment agents for the commission. The management said this in a statement it released on 13th February 2021 which was was signed by Magnus Ekechukwu, Assistant Director, Public Affairs

The management of NLRC, said that there is nothing like ongoing staff recruitment in the commission how much more that it was contracted to an agent who is doing it on behalf of the commission.

“We hereby wish to state categorically that the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) is currently not conducting any recruitment exercise and has not engaged any persons, agents or consultants to act as intermediaries for any recruitment exercise. 

“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to reiterate that employment into the NLRC is carried out in accordance with extant rules guiding such exercises in the Nigerian Public service in line with the due process philosophy of the Federal Government.”

The commission warned the public against falling for internet scammers,”In this regard, therefore, we would like to advise members of the public to discountenance any information circulating in the public space, particularly on social media regarding NLRC 2020/2021 recruitment.

The public should also note that recruitment into the NLRC is never done on monetary basis. Instead, it is guided by merit and transparency and beneficiaries undergo series of screening and vetting processes and procedures through which only the best are considered.

“These unscrupulous persons, particularly the naijacampusjams.com, are circulating fake recruitment notices on Social Media, as well as masquerading as recruitment agencies and issuing bogus NLRC recruitment forms 2020/2021 with spurious claims and promises of job offer into the NLRC.”
