The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has called on the general public to disregard the news making rounds on some websites that the institution is currently recruiting staff.
This was made known in a statement released and signed by the Director, Media and Publicity, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) Ibrahim Sheme, who said a Nigerian website, deroundable.com, has published a wordy announcement that the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) is recruiting staff.
With the mischievous screamer, “Massive Recruitment at the National 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.
The University wishes to inform the general public that the story from deroundable.com is fake and should therefore be dismissed for what it is, the statement further assures Nigerians that NOUN will not conduct any recruitment without the approval of the federal government.
Sheme added “As we had cause to advise in the past, 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.
