Contrary to reports making rounds that the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) is conducting a fresh recruitment and replacement exercises, and has dispatched recruitment forms to the state level for interested candidates to apply, the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, has called on Nigerians to disregard the information that the Corps is recruiting or doing a replacement, and warned that Nigerians should be wary of the activities of fraudsters who are parading themselves as agents to extort money from innocent job seekers.
In a statement released by the FRSC Head Media Relations and Strategy, Bisi Kazeem, he maintained that the activities of the fraudsters is been investigated by relevant authorities, and that the Corps Marshal is concerned about this worrisome development, hence, using this medium to clarify that FRSC is not conducting any form of recruitment or replacement exercise and will make it public knowledge whenever such recruitment exercise is approved by the Government.
In the words of the Corps Marshal; “no Government agency recruits without due approval and it is equally a standard practice for recruitment exercises to be advertised on radio, television, and through the print media”. He added that proper screening exercise is part of the procedure that cannot be bypassed during such exercises, whether recruitment or replacement.
He further stressed that when the Corps is recruiting, information on such is readily made available through the following official platforms www.frsc.gov.ng, www.fb.com/
or @FRSCNigeria on Twitter. The Corps can also be reached through a toll free
line 122 or 070022553772, 08077690055 and 08077690397 for any confirmation or
clarification on recruitment and other matters concerning the organization.
He assured Nigerians that the FRSC, in collaboration with security agencies, is on the trail of these criminal elements who are out to swindle Nigerians under the guise that the Corps is recruiting.
