Nigerian Navy Reference Hospital recruitment exercise 2023 is false,fake, says Naval spokesman

The Nigerian Navy says on Monday that a message circulating on social media to the effect that “Nigerian Navy Reference Hospital is conducting Recruitment for 2023” is fake.

A statement by Naval spokesman AO AYO-VAUGHAN stated that Nigerian Navy attention was drawn to the said message circulating on social media groups which states that Nigerian Navy Reference Hospital is conducting Recruitment for 2023.

The fake massage also called on “interested and eligible candidates to submit their written application letter and other relevant credentials to Naval Headquarters, Abuja (Attention: The Director of Naval Medical Services).”

It “further advised applicants to include contact phone number and addresses of 3 referees one of whom must be from the applicant’s institution”.

Nigerian Navy said: “For the avoidance of doubt, there is no such recruitment by the Nigerian Navy Medical Services. It is an attempt to mislead and possibly defraud innocent and unsuspecting members of the public.

“Against this backdrop, members of the public are advised to be careful and cautions so as not to be defrauded by criminals and fraudsters who are behind the false recruitment exercise.

“The Nigerian Navy’s Recruitment exercises are duly publicized and announced on both traditional and social media. It advised the public to disregard the false and fake message.
