The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has issued a statement urging members of the public to be wary of false information on federal government appointments.

In the statement which was released on Tuesday, the SGF said his attention has been drawn to “false information circulating on the social media through emails, text messages, and other outlets urging members of the public to submit their Curriculum Vitae at a fee, to a non-existing desk at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, to facilitate their selection for various federal government appointments.

He also observed, with dismay, that such “fraudsters have become so desperate to such an extent that they resort to sending fake advertisements for the supply of some medical diagnostic equipment to his Office.

“The Public is, by this notice, advised to disregard such information as the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has no such mandate and has never requested for such information nor does it advertise for the procurement of medical diagnostic equipment of any sort.

“SGF warns originators of such fraudulent requests to desist forthwith from using his Office to fleece unsuspecting members of the public or face the wrath of the law.
