Be wary of Dubious Recruitment Organisations –Lagosians told
Following the Resolution reached by the Lagos State House of Assembly on the illegal and dangerous activities of faceless recruitment agencies/organizations, the Lagos State Government hereby urges Lagosians to be wary of dubious outfits that are fraudulently seeking patronage from unsuspecting job seekers.
A release today by the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, stated that the Government is worried by the increasing activities of unscrupulous individuals and organizations, employing various tactics to advertise for phony job placement and in the course take advantage of unsuspecting innocent citizens.
While reaffirming the present administration’s commitment to improve security and protect lives and properties of all residents, the Commissioner warns criminally-minded individuals and organizations to desist from these despicable acts as anyone caught will be prosecuted according to the Law.
The release also urged the residents to always ascertain the genuineness of all job advertisement and patronize only those that can be traced and verified to be authentic.
It would be recalled that the House of Assembly, in a Resolution passed recently, called for public sensitization and awareness on activities of illegal organizations seeking patronage for non-existing jobs and defrauding innocent people in the process.
