The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) h as asked Nigerians to disregard reports making the rounds that the screening exercise for recruits is scheduled to begin on September 24.
There are online reports currently making the rounds on social media platforms of a recruitment screening exercise scheduled to take place from September 24 to September 29.
Dismissing the reports, Bisi Kazeem, FRSC public education officer, in a statement on Friday, said the screening exercise had taken place earlier in September.
He urged members of the public to ignore any report of an ongoing screening exercise, describing them as “fake news”.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Federal Road Safety Corps is drawn to the fake news making rounds that the Corps’ recruitment screening exercise will commence from the 24th of September to the 29th of September 2021,”
“The Corps, by this medium, warns the public to shun all false alert of the screening exercise as the said exercise had already been conducted and concluded from 6th September to 12th September 2021.
“The Corps implores applicants and the general public to avoid desperate moves that might lure them into the snare of these unscrupulous elements, and expressly disown all liability for extortion of any form arising from patronising these fraudsters, or reliance on any information contained in the social media pages they are using to spread this misinformation.
“Members of the public are hereby enjoined to visit www.frsc.gov.ng, www.facebook.com/FRSCNigeria or www.instagram.com/FRSCNigeria or the National Traffic Radio 107.1 FM for any publication from the FRSC.
“The Corps can also be reached through a toll free line 122 for any valid information.”
