The Federal Character Commission (FCC) has debunked purported on-going recruitment exercise by the commission being circulated on social media describing it as “fake news”.
In a statement signed by the commission’s director, public affairs and communication, Dr. Chuks Okoli for the FCC executive chairman, the commission urged the public to disregard the false information being circulated online, as he clarified that the commission is not recruiting.
“[The] attention of the commission has been drawn to the false information circulating around the social media that the Federal Character Commission is recruiting workers using telephone number of the executive chairman and the commission’s website.
“The Federal Character Commission is not a recruiting agency. The core mandate of the commission is to enforce the Federal Character Principle which is aimed at ensuring fair and equitable distribution of the posts and of socio-economic amenities among the federating units nationwide.
“The general public is, therefore, advised and warned to be wary of those unscrupulous elements going around, duping unsuspecting people with the name of the chief executive of the commission and fake commission’s website, as no recruitment is ongoing at the commission.”
