Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha has warned fraudsters to desist forthwith from using his Office to fleece unsuspecting members of the public or face the wrath of the law.
He stated this while also raising alert over false  information making the rounds urging members of the public to submit their Curriculum Vitae at a fee to secure various federal appointments.
Mustapha who is also the Chairman, Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 equally said fraudsters have resorted to sending fake advertisements for supply of some medical diagnostic equipment to his Office.
The warning and alerts were conveyed by Willie Bassey, Director (Information), Office of the SGF in a statement on Tuesday.
According to the statement, “The attention of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has been drawn to false information circulating on the social media through emails, text messages and other outlets urging members of the public to submit their Curriculum Vitae at a fee, to a non-existing desk at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, to facilitate their selection for various federal government appointments.

“The SGF has also observed, with dismay, that such fraudsters have become so desperate to such an extent that they resort to sending fake advertisements for supply of some medical diagnostic equipment to his Office.

“The Public is, by this notice, advised to disregard such information as the Office of the  Secretary to the Government of the Federation has no such mandate and has never requested for such information nor does it advertise for the procurement of medical diagnostic equipment of any sort.

“In view of the above, the SGF warns originators of such fraudulent requests to desist forthwith from using his Office to fleece unsuspecting members of the public or face the wrath of the law.”
