George Akume, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, has distanced himself from bogus appointments being used to defraud innocent Nigerians.
The SGF disclaimed false information circulating on social media and via emails, text messages, and other channels urging members of the public to submit their curriculum vitae for a fee to a non-existent desk at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to be considered for various federal government appointments.
The disclaimer was outlined in a statement signed by Segun Imohiosen, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation’s Head of Information.
According to the statement: “The culprit has been using the name of the former Director of 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 to disregard such information being peddled around.
“Any official inquiry and clarification should follow the official communication channels of the OSGF via http://osgf.gov.ng and [email protected].
“Given 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.”
