NAICOM Announces Fraudulent Recruitment Website

By Clement Alphonsus

The National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) has announced and disassociate itself from a fraudulent recruitment website claiming to represent the commission.

The commission urged that Nigerians should be wary of fraudulent recruitment websites, soliciting applications for employment at the commission.

According to a statement released by the commission, the NAICOM does not endorse any recruitment website other than its official platform.

It said, “NAICOM shall not be held responsible for any loss, damage, or inconvenience incurred as a result of engaging with fraudulent recruitment websites or individuals misrepresenting the Commission."

The regulator further expressed that accurate information regarding the recruitment, grants or any other official communication from NAICOM, should be sought through its recognised communication channels.

Salami said, “NAICOM shall not be held responsible for any loss, damage or inconvenience incurred due to engaging with fraudulent recruitment websites or individuals misrepresenting the commission.

“For accurate information regarding the recruitment, grants or any other official communication from NAICOM, please refer to our official website or contact us through our recognised communication channels."
