We’re not recruiting, FIRS cautions Nigerians

The Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, has cautioned the general public to be vigilant and circumspect, to avoid scam artists who pose as recruitment agents for the service and collect huge sums of money from unsuspecting victims with the promise to provide them employment.

FIRS, in a statement on Monday, emphatically stated that it is not conducting any recruitment at the moment, adding that it does not conduct recruitment exercises through backdoor channels.

The statement, signed by the Special Assistant to the Executive Chairman, FIRS on Media Communication, Johannes Oluwatobi Wojuola noted that “Should the FIRS at any instance have need to expand its workforce and consequently seek to recruit competent hands to carry out the task of revenue mobilization for the nation, the public can be rest assured that the Service would follow appropriate channels and processes in doing so; including advertisements on public channels of communication, followed by rigorous screening, interviews and examination exercises.”

The service further cautioned media practitioners not to allow their mediums to be used as platforms for publishing unauthorized fake application processes and recruitment portals that hoodwink the unsuspecting public.

“The Service would take all necessary legal action against any platform found to be engaged in such fraudulent advertisement.” It said.
