President Muhammadu Buhari has given approval for the recruitment of qualified Nigerians into the services of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
A statement at the weekend by Mr. Bisi Kazeem, Corps Public Education Officer, said recruitment has not begun, as advertisement for the positions has not been made public.
According to Kazeem: “His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari has graciously given approval for the recruitment of qualified Nigerians into the services of the corps, but the advertisement has not been made public yet.
“The corps has established mechanisms to achieve a smooth exercise and these established processes are presently undergoing scrutiny to ensure a flawless and smooth exercise.
“When we are ready, the public will be properly informed through adverts on the national dailies.
Kazeem therefore called on the general public to discountenance the current portal linked to the corps and has been in circulation in the Internet and other media platforms.
He further stressed that whenever the corps was recruiting, information on such would be readily made available through the following official platforms; www.frsc.gov.ng, www.facebook.com/FRSCNigeria or @FRSCNigeria on Twitter.
He pointed out that the corps could also be reached through a toll free line 122 or 070022553772, 08077690055 and 08077690397 for any confirmation or clarification on recruitment and other matters concerning the organization.
He, however, warned applicants to be wary of fraudsters, who have created fake FRSC website for purported recruitment into FRSC, warning that fraudsters intended to use the platform to fleece unsuspecting applicants of their hard earned money.
“The attention of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has been drawn to reports that the corps has advertised and has started a fresh recruitment exercise.
“Fake FRSC website has been created by some fraudsters in this regard to fleece unsuspecting applicants of their hard earned money.
“The corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has therefore, ordered that a public alert be given to innocent Nigerians to disregard the false information being peddled by the fraudsters in the social media.”
