The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday in Lagos denied carrying out recruitment exercise, while urged the general public to disregard messages and video being circulated in the social media.

Mrs Efe Ebelo, the Commission’s Head, Corporate Communications, said in a statement obtained by CAPITAL POST  in Lagos that there’s no recruitment being carried out by its acting Managing Director, Ms Mary Uduk.

Ebelo stressed that the messages and video being circulated were  false and called on Nigerians to be aware.

“The 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  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 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.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, since the acting director – general 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,” Ebelo stated.
