The National Open University of Nigeria on Tuesday has said any report of recruitment into the institution is false.
The Director of Media and Publicity in NOUN, ibrahim Sheme, made it clear in a statement issued in Abuja. It said the recruitment story "is fake and should therefore be dismissed for what it is."
He said, "As we had cause to advise in the past, the public should beware of the kind of stuff those purveyors of falsehood dish out to gullible readers with the apparent purpose of attracting hits to their websites.
"In a similar rebuttal we issued last year, we wish to restate once again that after fully complying with the Federal Government's directive to join the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, NOUN cannot employ anyone without government approval."
