FG warns against fake recruitment agencies for Nigeria Air

Ethiopian Airlines’ stake in Nigeria Air, an existential threat to aviation sector – Stakeholders

The federal government has announced that the attention of 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.

James Odaudu, the Special Assistant, Public Affairs to the Minister of Aviation, in a statement, on Tuesday, said the so-called agents have created a host of fake websites and links supposedly for the submission of applications by unsuspecting members of the public.

“We wish to inform the general public, especially those who have applied for the earlier officially advertised positions that no recruitment interviews or tests have been scheduled. All such announcements or invitations for such should be disregarded as they are the handiwork of fraudsters and scammers.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the official website is www.nigeriaair.world, and only those pre-qualified as meeting the B737 requirements will be contacted by the management of Nigeria Air Limited individually, and certainly not by public announcements,” Odaudu stated.

He stated that all those concerned are therefore advised to ignore such announcements or invitations, as responding to or dealing with them in any way, will be at their own risk.

“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 organisation so far, and wish to state that the recruitment process for other positions will begin in due course,” he added.
