Multiple posts on the internet claim that the NCDMB is recruiting for two positions – Mechanical and Construction Engineers.
The claim is false
The post appears on many websites, with the singular claim that the NCDMB is recruiting for the positions of Construction Engineer and Mechanical Engineer.
The post is titled: “Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) 2022 Job Recruitment”
Some of the websites that published the post included: Nyscinfo, jobzilla.ng, newbalancejobs.com and educationtoday.com, among others.
The post, published without variation across all the websites, outlined the requirements and expectations for the positions advertised.
The Mechanical Engineer, according to the post, is expected to work on a project mentioned as “Flex Joint Replacement Project”
One of the websites added that the salary range for employees in the NCDMB is between ₦85,000 to ₦120,000.
Ripples Nigeria did not find the post, nor any employment information, on the official website of the NCDMB, https://ncdmb.gov.ng.
Meanwhile the board has disclaimed the recruitment announcement, describing it as false and dubious.
The disclaimer was posted on its official twitter account, asking members of the public to disregard the publication.
“The board uses this medium to state categorically that the entire information in this publication is false, dubious, and calculated to defraud innocent members of the public.
“Please note that whenever NCDMB is ready to carry out recruitment, it will be based on merit, and in strict advertisements in widely read national newspapers and the NCDMB website official Social Member handles – @officialNCDMB”
It urged members of the public to ignore the “scam” of a post.
The disclaimer was signed by the Manager, Corporate Communications, Esueme Dan Kikile.
