The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), has drawn the attention of the public to a fake competition trending online which claims to celebrate the corporation’s “anniversary event”.
In the purported contest, unsuspecting participants are encouraged to fill out a questionnaire on their knowledge of the company, with the eventual winner standing the chance of winning some cash reward of up to US$8,000.
A statement by the NNPC group general manager, group public affairs division, Garba Muhammad, said the NNPC has nothing to do with the purported anniversary contest and advised members of the public to decline any participation in the survey, as it is a scam.
“In the same vein, the NNPC would also like to, once again, inform the public that the information circulating on social media that NNPC is conducting a recruitment exercise is not true and the public should disregard it in its entirety.
“The NNPC, hereby, reiterates that whenever it decides to conduct a recruitment exercise or send out information to the public, it will do so through authentic public communication channels, particularly the NNPC’s website (www.nnpcgroup.com),” the statement added.
