The attention of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been drawn to the
activities of some fraudulent persons using the social media to
misinform the public about a purported general recruitment exercise in
the Bank. These dubious elements have also in the process collected
from some unsuspecting applicants under false pretext.
Notice of False Rumour: CBN not conducting any General Recruitment Exercise
For the avoidance of doubt, the CBN is currently not carrying out
general recruitment. It also wishes to reiterate that the Bank does not
receive money directly or through any representative for the purpose of
The CBN, as a responsible establishment, will not embark on general
recruitment exercise without due process, and in accordance with the
provisions of extant laws. Whenever the Bank is ready to do this it will
be duly publicized through its website: www.cbn.gov.ng and other media available to it, without a fee.
We therefore warn members of the public, particularly anxious
applicants, to be wary of fraudsters, as anyone dealing with them would
be doing so at his or her own risk.
