The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has once more warned Nigerians to stay away from a website that purports to be a gateway for ad hoc personnel recruitment for the 2023 general election.
This was said by INEC in a succinct statement delivered on Tuesday in Abuja by Mr. Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman.
Oyekanmi claimed that the portal was a scam because the commission had stopped hiring for the election and had taken down its official recruitment website.
“The website/blog below is advertising ad hoc staff positions for the 2023 general election.
“However, the commission is no longer recruiting ad hoc staff for the 2023 General Election.
“The INEC ad hoc staff recruitment portal was officially shut down on Dec. 14 2022.
“Therefore, the site, with the URL – http://www.yournewclaims.com/Inec-Recriutment/ is fake. It is intended to defraud unsuspecting members of the public. Nigerians should disregard it,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that INEC had on Oct. 5, 2022 raised alarm on similar fake ad hoc recruitment link inecnigeria.govservice.site being circulated online.
NAN reports that the commission on Sept. 7, 2022 announced that its official recruitment portal for 2023 general election (www.pres.inecnigeria.org) would be opened to the public on Wednesday Sept. 14, 2022 by 8 a.m. and would be closed on Wednesday, Dec. 14, by 8p.m.(NAN)
