The Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG) on Wednesday called on the public to ignore an advert purportedly seeking and promising candidates jobs in its Train 7 project.
Mr Andy Odeh, NLNG’s Manager, Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, gave the disclaimer in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt.
Odeh said that the fictitious advert currently in circulation, had allegedly presented two companies to be working for the NLNG.
“The attention of the NLNG has been drawn to an oil and gas training programme organised by Almond Technical Career Development.
“The training programme in partnership with Deopel Engineering and School of Professional Mentoring and Capacity Building is allegedly for NLNG’s Train 7 project.
“The organisers, in the publicity material, alleged that the NLNG mandated consultants to organise training sessions for those interested in participating in the project.
Odeh said the organisers also claimed in the advert that participants of the training would be enlisted for employment in the database of the main Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor.
“NLNG expressly dissociates itself from this training programme. NLNG is not collaborating with any company for the recruitment of personnel for its Train 7 Project.
“No company has been awarded the EPC contract for Train 7, as the selection process is still ongoing.
“Members of the public are hereby urged to take necessary steps to verify claims of persons purporting to act on behalf of NLNG,” he advised.
The spokesman further cautioned the public against making financial transactions in response to such claims, urging victims to report the incident to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
“NLNG expressly disclaims any liability for any losses incurred by any person or persons as a result of reliance on such fraudulent communication, emails or publications,” Odeh said.
