ABUJA- The Management of the Nigeria Air Ltd., has advised the general public to ignore fake websites and links used for advertisement and recruitment by people claiming to be agents or staff of the upcoming airline.
This is contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by Mr James Odaudu, the Special Assistant on Public Affairs to the Minister of Aviation.
Odaudu urged the citizens to ignore such notifications or invitations as nothing of such exercise was currently going on.
“The attention of the Management of Nigeria Air Ltd., has been drawn to some recruitment advertisements and announcements by certain unscrupulous elements claiming to be agents or staff of the upcoming airline.
“The so-called agents have created a host of fake websites and links supposedly for the submission of applications by unsuspecting members of the public.
“We wish to inform the general public, especially those who have applied for the earlier officially advertised positions that no recruitment interviews or tests have been scheduled, “ he said.
He reiterated that all such announcements or invitations for such ought to be disregarded as they were the handiwork of fraudsters and scammers.
According to him, the official website is www.nigeriaair.world for the avoidance of doubt.
“Only those pre-qualified as meeting the B737 requirements will be contacted by the management of Nigeria Air Ltd. individually, and certainly not by public announcements.
“All those concerned are therefore advised to ignore such announcements or invitations, as responding to, or dealing with them in any way, will be at their own risk.
“Management appreciates the unprecedented level of interest shown by Nigerians in the airline which has resulted in the receipt of over 20,000 applications for positions in the organisation so far, “ he said.
Odaudu added that the recruitment process for other positions would begin in due course. (NAN)
