Yakubu Dati, General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, who dismissed the report in a statement made available to our correspondent, described the reports as false and misleading, therefore urging the public to disregarded them
Dati explained 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 last recruitment exercise however, was concluded in May, 2015.
The statement read, “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 moreso 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.
“Please, be informed that the only and authentic website that belongs to the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria is www.faan.gov.ng.”
