The management of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has described information in some quarters that the institution is recruiting people as members of its staff as fake news.
A statement issued today, October 19 by its spokesman, Mr Ibrahim Sheme urged Nigerians to discard reports of recruitment.
“The story, mischievously captioned “National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) Recruitment 2020 and How to Apply”, is being pushed out to the public principally by two notorious online platforms, Opera News (operanewsapp.com) and Financial Watch (financialwatchngr.com).
“The University hereby informs the general public that this story is fake and therefore should be dismissed for what it is.
“The public should beware of the kind of stuff those purveyors of falsehood dish out to gullible readers with the apparent reason of attracting hits to their websites.
“The public should also understand that after fully complying with the Federal Government’s directive to join the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, NOUN cannot employ anyone without government approval,” Sheme stated.
