NSCDC sends strong message to applicants on recruitment process
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has warned prospective applicants not to give out money to anyone with the aim of securing employment.
NSCDC declared that its recruitment exercise was free of any charge from prospective applicants.
Ekunola Gbenga, the Media Assistant to NSCDC Commandant-General, in a statement on Sunday said anyone with “vital information concerning suspected fraudsters to report to the nearest Corps stations.”
The corps reiterated that its ongoing recruitment process was completely “free of charge” and executed in an equitable and transparent manner.
NSCDC warned the “public and especially applicants not to have any financial dealings with anyone as a guarantee for the recruitment into the service.”
The Corps said it was working to apprehend the perpetrators of the illegal activities.
According to Ekunola: “Information reaching the NSCDC indicates that some unscrupulous individuals were extorting money from unsuspecting applicants/candidates under the false impression that they can guarantee their eventual recruitment into the Service.
“Therefore, no applicant is required to make any payments to any individuals or bank accounts at any time during the recruitment process.”
