The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has urged Nigerians to disregard a social media video and messages alleging that the commission was engaged in recruitment exercise.
A statement by the Commission’s Head, Corporate Communication, Efe Ebelo, said SEC has not conducted any recruitment exercise under the leadership of Acting Director General, Ms Mary Uduk as being speculated by some persons.
“Securities and Exchange Commission’s attention has been drawn to some messages and a video being circulated in the social media, wherein the Commission is alleged to have carried out a recruitment exercise where 811 persons were employed, all from Anambra State with one from Kano State.
“The messages parade the person shown in the video as Ms Mary Uduk, the Acting Director General of the Commission.
“The Commission therefore wishes to inform the general public that the person shown in the video is not the Acting Director General of SEC, and no such recruitment exercise was conducted”.
Mrs. Ebelo added: “For the avoidance of any doubt, since the Acting DG assumed office, the Commission has not carried out any recruitment exercise.
“The general public is therefore advised to disregard the messages and video being circulated as they are false”.
