For the umpteenth time, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has dispelled rumours making rounds of a recruitment exercise it is undertaking, describing the information that has pervaded the social and traditional media as false and misleading.
In a statement released by the General Manager Corporate Communication, Yakubu Dati at the weekend, FAAN only has one authentic website at www.faan.gov.ng and that there is no recruitment taking place at the moment as the last exercise was concluded in May 2015 for certain positions in the authority.
The statement read, ”The Authority wishes to again, inform the general public that recent reports of recruitment exercise in the Authority, published in some sections of both the traditional and social media, are false and misleading. They should therefore be disregarded.”
“The last recruitment exercise in the Authority took place between March and May, 2015 to recruit officers into the Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Service (ARFFS), Aviation Security (AVSEC) and Information Communication Technology departments which had shortage of professional staff. The exercise was concluded in May, 2015.”
“At the appropriate time, the Authority will invite successful candidates during that exercise, for mandatory training before deployment to various airports across the country.”
“We wish to emphasise that no recruitment exercise is taking place in FAAN at the moment. This is moreso because it has come to our notice that fraudulent recruitment agents and questionable recruitment websites are deceiving and in some cases, duping unsuspecting applicants by giving out misleading information about an ongoing recruitment exercise in FAAN.”
“Please, be informed that the only and authentic website that belongs to the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria is www.faan.gov.ng”
