The syndicate had printed a letter-headed paper of the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on NDDC, Delta North, saying it is an “application form” to be purchased with a N500 (Five hundred naira) non-refundable” fee. Reactions from the public unravelled the activities of the syndicate.
But in a swift reaction the Senior Special Assistant, Engr. Felix Omel Melenu said, “there was no time NDDC made such offer for employment” to his knowledge “neither did I mandate anybody or group of persons to issue application forms for the said non-existing job(s)” emphasizing, “I wish to state that I have no knowledge of the employment opportunities at NDDC”.
“Members of the public are advised to discountenance the fake forms in circulation and be warned of the activities of fraudsters,” Engr. Melenu said.
He disclosed that security agents have been informed to carry out further investigation of the matter to deter others with similar intentions, observing that it was a sad development.
Engr. Melenu disclosed that he was informed of the development by concerned members of the public who asked for further clarifications from him, noting that the people involved played on the intelligence of unsuspecting members of the public who are job seekers and their parents or benefactor.
