The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has debunked reports that it is begun conducting any 2021 recruitment exercise.
The commission in a statement said it is not associated with recruitment exercise being circulated on several websites and blogs.
According to the commission, Nigerians should disregard the said websites and blogs and the messages being disseminated therein.
Part of the statement reads: “The attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘the Commission’) has been drawn to several websites and blogs purportedly affiliated to the Commission which are said to be advertising ongoing ‘recruitment exercise’ by the Commission.
“The Commission warned the public to be careful as there is no ongoing recruitment at the moment.
“This is to inform the general public that the referenced websites and blogs are fake and that no such recruitment exercise is being carried out.
“For the avoidance of doubt, SEC has not advertised any vacancies and is not currently recruiting.”
Meanwhile, the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) on Sunday announced its decision to sell the five power generation companies constructed under National Integrated Power Project (NIPP).
Naija News reports that this was made known by the BPE in a document signed by the Director-General, Alex Okoh, and made available to newsmen.
The BPE asked investors to bid for the 100 percent shareholding of the government in any of the companies.
The document said that it was in continuation of the ongoing reforms of the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry and consistent with the Nigerian Electric Power Policy and Electric Power Sector Reform (EPSR) Act, 2005.
It also disclosed that the Board of Directors of Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) and the National Council on Privatisation had approved the sale of the five companies through a competitive bidding process.
