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.
