The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has dismissed an online asking unemployed youths to submit their Curriculum Vitae (CV) to the ministry for employment.
In statement by the Deputy Director of Press in the Ministry, Samuel Olowookere, he said the call for recruitment in the ministry is false, urging the public to disregard it.
The statement said: “The general public is hereby advised to disregard this false directive as it did not emanate from the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.
“In view of the apprehension the above false information has generated, it is pertinent to point out that the present administration is committed to the creation of decent employment opportunities for the teeming unemployed Nigerians.”
The ministry assured that the Muhammadu Buhari administration “has perfected plans for massive job creation through well thought out programmes such as Graduate Teachers Conversion Programme and Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), among others.”
It said the general public would be informed in due course when any of these programmes/scheme would commence.
