Again, FAAN alerts on fake recruitment exercise


Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), yesterday said it was not recruiting, warning the general public to beware of swindlers who advertise such on websites and social media.

Yakubu Dati, FAAN spokesperson, said the only authentic website of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria was www.faan.gov.ng, adding that the last recruitment exercise in the Authority took place between March and May 2015, to recruit officers into the Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Service (ARFFS), Aviation Security (AVSEC) and Information Communication Technology departments, which had shortage of professional staff.

He said the exercise was concluded in May 2015.

“FAAN wishes to again, inform the general public that recent reports of recruitment exercise in the Authority, published in some sections of both the traditional and social media, are false and misleading. They should therefore be disregarded.

“At the appropriate time, the Authority will invite successful candidates during that exercise, for mandatory training before deployment to various airports across the country.

“We wish to emphasise that no recruitment exercise is taking place in FAAN at the moment. This is more so because it has come to our notice that fraudulent recruitment agents and questionable recruitment websites are deceiving and in some cases, duping unsuspecting applicants by giving out misleading information about an ongoing recruitment exercise in FAAN,” he said.
