The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) is compelled to publish this disclaimer alerting the general public to the activities of some unscrupulous persons who are using fake employment notices to deceive unsuspecting Nigerians into parting with huge sums of money for employment into the DPR. They do this by masquerading as recruitment agencies and issuing bogus “DPR recruitment forms 2020” filled with spurious claims and promises of job offer into DPR.

We hereby wish to state categorically that at no time has the Department employed or engaged any persons, agents, contractors or consultants to act as intermediaries for recruitment. Neither have we authorized anyone to charge any fees or issue recruitment forms on behalf of the Department.

For the avoidance of any doubt, we wish to reiterate that employment into the Department is carried out in accordance with extant rules guiding such exercises in the Nigerian Public service in line with due process philosophy of government.

In this regard therefore, we would like to advise the public to discountenance any information circulating in the public space particularly social media regarding “DPR 2020 recruitment forms”and to only refer to the the DPR official website: www.dpr.gov.ng for information pertaining to vacancies or any other information on our activities. Any person who does otherwise, does so at their own risk.
Please be warned!
