The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) attention has been drawn to a fake letter of appointment circulating on social media purportedly issued to one Bashir Ahmad.
In a letter issued and signed by the Department’s head of Public Affairs, Paul Osu, he described it as the handiwork of some mischief makers.
“This is the handiwork of some mischief makers hiding behind the veil of social media to spread fake news and mislead the public.”
“We hereby advise members of the public to disregard the purported letter in its entirety as it is not from DPR.”
We wish to reiterate that employment into the Department is carried out in accordance with extant rules guiding such exercises in the Nigerian Public Service in line with due process.
