The University of Port Harcourt has denied an ongoing online job recruitment purportedly credited to the institution via a website.
UNIPORT in a disclaimer made available to this publication and signed by its new Public Relations Officer, Sam Kpenu, urged the public to disregard the online job recruitment, saying it is a scam.
The statement reads: “The attention of the University of Port Harcourt has been drawn to an online publication purportedly asking members of the public to apply for Academic and non-Academic jobs in the University of Port Harcourt.
“The authorities of the University wish to state categorically that:
“ The University has not advertised for any job vacancies.
“ The website created for an online application for employment did not emanate from the University of Port Harcourt.
“Consequently, the public is hereby advised not to patronise the so-called online recruitment exercise as it is the handiwork of fraudsters to smear the hard earned reputation of the University of Port Harcourt.
“Please disregard the fraudulent online portal/site.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the University of Port Harcourt disseminates information from the institution to the public through its official website (www.uniport.edu.ng) and national dailies.”
