NDDC alerts public of impostors offering fake jobs, contracts on social media
The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), on Tuesday, warned the public to disregard any social media accounts advertising jobs and contracts opportunities in the commission.
Prof. Kemebradikumo Pondei, the NDDC Acting Managing Director, made this known in a statement in Port Harcourt, stating that two Facebook accounts had been purportedly opened in his name to dupe unsuspecting Nigerians.
He said, “The two Facebook accounts used in deceiving Nigerians were operated by so-called ‘Dr. Alfred of SDG’
“Prof. Pondei does not have an active Facebook account as he is occupied with the repositioning of NDDC.
“The accounts are cloned buttons activated by scammers to use the name and photograph of Prof. Pondei to defraud members of the public.
“Anyone who relates with Pondei on Facebook does so at a huge risk, as the acting managing director has not solicited for payment of any kind as a condition for employment or contracts.”
Pondei urged individuals and groups willing to do business with NDDC to always crosscheck facts at the commission’s official website and other social media handles.
According to him, the matter has been reported to security agencies to investigate and bring the criminals behind the fake accounts to justice, NAN reports.
