Following a report by FactcheckElections, the Independent National Electoral Commission has warned Nigerians to be wary of fake portals for the 2023 general election’s ad hoc staff recruitment.
FactcheckElections had earlier debunked a WhatsApp post claiming that INEC is recruiting for the 2023 general election.
INEC gave this warning in a statement delivered on Tuesday in Abuja by the chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi.
Oyekanmi declared that the portal was a scam because the commission had stopped hiring for the election and had shut down its official website for hiring.
“The website/blog below is advertising ad hoc staff positions for the 2023 general election.
“However, the commission is no longer recruiting ad hoc staff for the 2023 general election. The INEC ad hoc staff recruitment portal was officially shut down on December 14, 2022.
“Therefore, the site, with the URL – http://www.yournewclaims.com/Inec-Recriutment/ is fake. It is intended to defraud unsuspecting members of the public. Nigerians should disregard it.” He said
