Warning Nigerians: Nigeria Air Denies Recent Recruitment Advertisements



On Tuesday, the management of Nigeria Air Limited issued a warning to Nigerians about shady individuals using fake websites and links for recruitment announcements and advertisements.

In a statement, James Odaudu, Special Assistant (Public Affairs) to the Minister of Aviation, advised Nigerians to disregard such notifications or invitations because no new exercise is currently underway.
Additionally, he advised applicants for previously advertised positions to obtain authentic information from the official
According to the statement, unsuspecting members of the public should be aware of the actions of the so-called agents, who have created a number of fake websites and links claiming to be for the submission of applications, and they should take precautions against them.
According to a portion of the statement, “The Management of Nigeria Air Limited has been drawn to some recruitment advertisements and announcements by certain unscrupulous elements claiming to be agents or staff of the upcoming airline.”
As a result, those involved are urged not to respond to such announcements or invitations because doing so could result in serious consequences.
The management clarified, “For the avoidance of doubt, the official website is, and only those pre-qualified as meeting the B737 requirements will be contacted individually, and certainly not by public announcements.”
The management of Nigerian Air also took advantage of the occasion to inform the general public, particularly those who had previously applied for positions that had been officially advertised, that no recruitment interviews or tests have been scheduled, and that any announcements or invitations for such activities should be ignored because they are the work of con artists and con artists.
According to the statement, “Management appreciates the unprecedented level of interest shown by Nigerians in the airline, which has resulted in the receipt of over 20,000 applications for positions in the organization so far” and “wants to state that the recruitment process for other positions will begin in due course.”
In the meantime, these dubious individuals are defrauding job seekers day in and day out of their time and money by posting fake job ads on popular recruitment websites.
The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) issued a similar warning to the general public just two months ago, urging them to exercise caution and stop dealing with artists who pose as recruitment agents for the Service in order to steal large sums of money from unsuspecting victims by promising them employment.
The Service informed the general public that it was not conducting any recruitment at the moment, and it would not use backdoor recruitment methods if it were required to increase its workforce.
The FIRS insisted that it does not compromise standards and is very careful to hire competent individuals to carry out the nation’s revenue mobilization task. The Service also stated that it will inform the general public when it is recruiting so that they can follow the appropriate channels and procedures.
In its recruitment processes, FIRS stated that it has always used advertisements on public communication channels followed by rigorous screening, interview, and examination procedures.
The Service also cautioned media professionals against allowing their platforms to be used as platforms for publishing recruitment portals and unapproved application processes that deceive the general public.
The Service’s management stated that it would pursue all legal options against any platform found to be running such fraudulent advertisements.
