NNPC Dissociates Self From Fake Chemistry Competition.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) have stated that the trending online advert inviting the public to submit entries for a phantom 2019/2020 Annual Chemistry Competition was fake.
In a statement released by the NNPC’s Acting Spokesman, Mr Samson Makoji, on Wednesday in Abuja, the corporation distanced itself and all its subsidiaries from such advert.
It described the online advert which contrived that the exercise was organised to improve the standard of learning of Chemistry in Nigeria as phoney and advised applicants to be wary of the fraudsters behind the act.
The statement revealed that the advert had stated various fictitious monetary values to the categories of winners it was interested in luring into the fake scheme.
It also listed eligibility of participants to include graduates of Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering and other related courses.
The corporation further called on students and stakeholders in the education value chain not to fall prey to the nefarious activities of the fraudsters. (NAN)
