The Office of the Head of Local Government Service (OHLGS) has denied claims of any new recruitments in the country.

Their statement is in response to a widely circulated advertisement on social media purporting that the Service was embarking on a nationwide recruitment exercise.

According to the OHLGS, the said publication on social media is false and should be treated with the contempt it deserves.

“The Service wishes to inform the general public that, it is not the author of the said recruitment advert and neither has it contracted any institution or individual to do so on its behalf. The Service, therefore, urges all to disregard the said advert and treat it as a scam,” the Service said in a statement sighted by MyJoyOnline.

The Service advised that any such opportunities that will come in the future will be announced via the official government channels.

“The Service further wishes to assure the general public that when such opportunities turn up in future, due processes and procedures will be followed and the general public will be informed accordingly through appropriate channels,” they said.
