Scam alert! NOUN not recruiting

National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has said it is not recruiting as against a report going viral on social media suggesting so.

The university in a statement signed by its Director, Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Sheme said a Nigerian website published a wordy announcement that NOUN is recruiting staff with the mischievous screamer, “Massive Recruitment at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).”

“The notorious website falsely informed its visitors that the institution is calling for applications for recruitment as members of its academic and non-academic staff,” he said.

He said: “The University hereby informs the general public that the story from the website is fake and should therefore be dismissed for what it is.”

Sheme said as they had cause to advise in the past, the public should beware of the kind of stuff those purveyors of falsehood dish out to gullible readers with the apparent purpose of attracting hits to their websites.

“In a similar rebuttal we issued last year, we wish to restate once again that after fully complying with the Federal Government’s directive to join the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), NOUN cannot employ anyone without government approval,” he said.
