The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), has said it is not behind a competition trending online which claims to celebrate a so called “Anniversary Event.”
The Corporation stated this in a statement by Garba Deen Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division.
In the purported contest, unsuspecting participants are encouraged to carry out a survey by filling out a questionnaire on their knowledge of the Company, with the eventual winner standing the chance of winning some cash reward of up to $8,000.
The NNPC in the statement said it has nothing to do with the purported anniversary event contest and advised members of the public to decline any participation in the survey as it is a scam.
In the same vein, NNPC also warned that the information circulating in the social media that it is conducting a recruitment exercise is untrue.
It called on the public to disregard it in its entirety.
“The NNPC hereby reiterates that whenever it decides to conduct a recruitment exercise or send out information to the public, it will do so through authentic public communication channels, particularly the NNPC’s website (www.nnpcgroup.com),” it added.
