November 12, (THEWLL) – The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has distanced itself from an advertisement on social media, calling for qualified candidates to fill some vacant positions in the establishment.
The Council, in a statement issued on Saturday, by its Head of Public Affairs Unit, Mrs Moyosola Adesina, described the advertisement as misleading and fake.
Describing the advertisement as handiwork of fraudsters, the statement read: “The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) wishes to inform its stakeholders and the general public that the advert making the rounds on social media that the council is recruiting for the year 2022/2023 is false.
“The general public should disregard this advertisement as it is a hoax aimed at exploiting innocent Nigerians, especially desperate job seekers.
“For the purpose of clarity, WAEC will never ask anyone to pay any amount to secure a job on any of its platforms.
“Furthermore, the council publishes its recruitment advertisements only on national dailies and its official website.”
