The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited, has denied a fake competition trending online which claims to celebrate a purported “Anniversary Event”.
In a statement signed by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Garba Deen Muhammad, the NNPC draw the attention of the general public to the supposed contest, asking unsuspecting participants to carry out a survey by filling out a questionnaire on their knowledge of the Company, with the eventual winner standing the chance of winning some cash reward of up to $8,000 (Eight thousand dollars).
“The NNPC has nothing to do with the purported anniversary event contest and is advising members of the public to decline any participation in the survey as it is a SCAM. In the same vein, NNPC would also like to once again inform the public that the information circulating in the Social Media that NNPC is conducting a recruitment exercise IS NOT TRUE and the public should disregard it in its entirety.” The statement read.
The state oil firm further noted that whenever it decides to conduct a recruitment exercise or send out information to the public, it will do so through authentic public communication channels, particularly the NNPC’s website (www.nnpcgroup.com).
