Navy restates commitment to improving personnel welfare

NIGERIAN Navy has denied reports going round that it is collecting money from candidates applying for the 2016 recruitment exercise.
Instead, it said the reports available to it suggested that some criminal elements operating in various locations across the country were defrauding prospective candidates by directing them to pay N40,000 for placement in the 2016 recruitment exercise.
According to a statement issued yesterday by its director of Information, Commodore Christian Odogwu Ezekibe, the navy stated that, “The attention of the Nigerian Navy has been drawn to reports (not media report) which suggest that syndicates purportedly operating in the name of Nigerian Navy are defrauding prospective candidates by directing them to pay N40,000 for placement in the 2016 recruitment exercise.”
The statement stated further that, “In view of the above, parents, guardians and candidates have sought confirmation from the Nigerian Navy on this disturbing criminal extortion by the syndicates. Therefore, after a thorough investigation, the Nigerian Navy is requesting parents, guardians, candidates and the general public to avoid being defrauded as nobody has been mandated, directed or authorised to collect money from any candidate in the course of the 2016 recruitment exercise.
“The Nigerian Navy thereby reiterates that, as directed by the federal government, participation in the recruitment exercise remains free. No candidate is expected to make any form of payment for placement in the Nigerian Navy. However, the list of successful candidates which is being compiled will soon be released to the general public through appropriate channels of communication,” the statement informed.
