The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume has alerted the public over alleged fake appointment messages on public domain.

This was made known in a statement on Tuesday titled, 'SGF Warns Public Over Fake Appointments', and signed by the OSGF Head of Information, Segun Imohiosen.

The statement noted that, the attention of the SGF has been drawn to the purported fake appointments by unscrupulous elements to swindle unsuspecting individuals. 

The SGF described as false the information circulating on the social media, emails, text messages, and other outlets urging members of the public to submit their Curriculum Vitae at a fee, to a non-existing desk at the Office of the SGF to facilitate their selection for various Federal Government appointments. 

He stated that, “The culprit has been using the name of the former Director Information, Willie Bassey, and these fraudulent contacts; Aliyu Isah; +234 9168487156, +234 8035557865 and email; [email protected], among others to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians. 

“The general public is by this notice advised to be wary of the perpetrators of these dubious activities and their cohorts and disregard such information being peddled around. 

“Any official enquiry and clarification should follow the official communication channels of the OSGF via osgf.gov.ng and [email protected]

“In view of the above, the SGF warns peddlers of such fraudulent requests to desist forthwith from using the Office to fleece unsuspecting members of the public or face the wrath of the law,” the statement reads.
