The management of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) says the university is not currently undertaking any job recruitment contrary to a report by a website, deroundable.com.
Ibrahim Sheme, Director, Media and Publicity at NOUN said in a statement sent to Elendu Reports that the story from the website was fake which must be dismissed by members of the public.
“A Nigerian website, deroundable.com, has just published a wordy announcement that the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) is recruiting staff,” Sheme wrote in the statement.
“With the mischievous screamer, “Massive Recruitment at the National Open Open University of Nigeria (NOUN)”, the notorious website falsely informed its visitors that the institution is calling for applications for recruitment as members of its academic and non-academic staff.”
He warned that ” the public should beware of the kind of stuff those purveyors of falsehood dish out to gullible readers with the apparent purpose of attracting hits to their websites”.
“In a similar rebuttal, we issued last year, we wish to restate once again that after fully complying with the Federal Government’s directive to join the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), NOUN cannot employ anyone without government approval.”
