Fake News Alert: NOUN is not recruiting – VC
The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has for a second time announced that it is not recruiting.
The announcement comes after a purported report online alleging that the institution’s recruitment for 2022 is ongoing.
However, the Vice Chancellor of the Institution, Prof. Olufemi Peters has in a statement signed by the Director, Media and Publicity, NOUN, Ibrahim Sheme refuted the claim saying that it was a fake report circulated by a dubious website.
The VC emphasized that this type of deception is a common stock in trade of the dubious websites that scheme to achieve maximum hits and promote their business.
”The attention of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has been drawn to a story on one website calling itself www.opr.news with the headline “NOUN Recruitment 2022/2023 Application Form Portal”. He said.
The website alleged to have summarized a fake report published by another dubious website, www.recruitmentbeam.com.ng claiming:
“The National Open University of Nigeria recruitment for 2022 is currently ongoing.” It offered to “provide information on NOUN recruitment portal (www.nouedu.net), how to apply for NOUN 2022 recruitment form and other related information to help you get the job.”
”The Management of NOUN wishes to inform the general public that the University is not recruiting anyone and that the story uploaded by the two websites is false.” he a
