NSITF board chairman, Dr. Ngozi Olejeme explains that in order to actualize the agency's mandate, it is restructuring the organization and also re-engineering its current workforce to reflect the objective
of the Scheme.

of the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan and that no stone will be left unturned to ensure that the agency measures up to global standards.

will not be distracted in its efforts to achieve its core mandate.
NSITF applies very strict employment policy, which has earned
accolades from several organizations particularly by the Federal Character Commission. The federal character commission recently adjudged NSITF as one of the most transparent and most equitable government agencies in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the attention of the NSITF has been drawn to the fraudulent activities of some scammers using the internet and other social media platforms to swindle innocent job seekers, with promises of fake job
vacancies in the agency.
NSITF in a statement frowned at this act and dissociates itself from the activities of the scammers, the agency also warned the public to disregard individuals requesting for monies or any form of gratification in exchange for job opportunities in the agency,
insisting that it employs strictly based on competence.
