The University of Port Harcourt has denied reports that it is recruiting new members of staff to fill vacant positions.
The UNIPORT management in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Sunday said the publication making the rounds that it was recruiting was the handiwork of fraudsters.
This was contained in a statement signed by the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Dr. Sam Kpenu.
The statement read, “The attention of Management of the University of Port Harcourt, has been drawn to a publication making the rounds on social media to the effect that the University is recruiting new staff.
“The Management wishes to state in clear terms that it has not issued any advertorial for any recruitment exercise.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the University only advertised for the appointment of Director of Works and Services, Director of Procurement as well as Director of Physical Planning and Development.
“If and when the University needs more employees, the recruitment exercise would be made official and appropriately channelled through its website @ www.uniport.edu.ng as well as mainstream/conventional media outlets.”
“Members of the public are therefore enjoined to distance themselves from such fraudulent online advertorial, as it can only be the handiwork of fraudsters who are hellbent on swindling unsuspecting members of the public.
“This fake recruitment exercise has been reported to the security agencies.
“It is the hope of Management that the long arm of the law will soon catch up with those involved in this unwholesome practice,” the statement added.
