- Presidency urges the public to ignore fake recruitment report.
- Some unemployed youths hope to secure job as legal aids.
The Presidency has told the public to ignore notices of recruitment at State House Clinic.
The Presidency stated this through the Permanent Secretary, State House Abuja, Jalal Arabi.
Arabi in a statement said that the alleged recruitment currently making the rounds on the internet was not true.
The Permanent Secretary, therefore, advised the public to be more circumspect and wary of such notices designed by mischief makers to deceive and extort unsuspecting job seekers. Arabi assured that the sponsors of the publication will be investigated and prosecuted.
In a related development, some unemployed youths hoping to secure job as legislative aides by new members of the House of Representatives on Thursday thronged the entrance of the lower chamber during plenary.
It was gathered that some of them were former support staff of members of the House, who lost their seats in the 2019 general elections.
The job seekers were seen standing in groups around the entrance, hoping to present their curriculum vitae to the lawmakers after plenary.
The applicants later rushed towards legislators walking through the lobby to introduce themselves and talk about their mission.
Speaking, one of the applicants who pleaded anonymity said she was very experienced having worked with a lawmaker in the eighth Assembly and her former boss lost in the last general elections, leaving her without a job.
She expressed hope that she would find favour with a new lawmaker who would employ her as an aide.
