The Federal Government has said that it didn’t set up a task force purportedly meant for the recruitment of officers into the Federal Civil Service cadre.

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Alhaji Bukar Goni Aji, described as illegal a group known as 'Federal Civil Service Recruitment Task Force' claiming to have been set up by his Office and selling fake recruitment forms to applicants.

In a statement, Aji warned the public to be aware that the responsibility for the recruitment of officers into the Federal Civil Service is that of the Federal Civil Service Commission and that the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation plays no role in the process. He pointed out that the Commission has been advertising vacant positions and the application process in Nigerian newspapers.

He advised applicants to always get appropriate information on recruitment from the Commission's office in Abuja or through its website and avoid dealing with fraudsters when seeking employment into the Federal Civil Service.
