The Wife of the Governor of Cross River State, Dr. Linda Ayade has dissociated herself from some facebook I.Ds purportedly belonging to her, which have been asking unsuspecting job seekers to pay sums of money for prospective employment in some federal agencies.

In a statement today by her Special Assistant on Media and Communication, Fred Abua, the First Lady distanced herself from those accounts and described them as fraudulent while vowing that it will never be feasible for her to collect money from anybody on the promise of a job.

“The attention of the Wife of the Governor of Cross River State, Her Excellency, Dr. Linda Ayade, has been drawn to the fraudulent use of her name by some persons to defraud unsuspecting Cross Riverians with the promise of a job in the Nigerian Customs Service, Nigerian Immigration Service, NNPC and other similar establishments.

“This notice is to dissociate Her Excellency’s office from this scam. The Governor’s wife has neither promised anybody a job on social media nor has she mandated anyone to do so.

“Her Excellency has one personal Facebook account and one Official Facebook page: The authenticity of each of these is obvious from the posts therein.

“Her Excellency, Dr. Linda Ayade, understands the plight of job seekers in Nigeria and will never require them to pay any money in order to get a job – no matter how small such a payment might be.

“Finally, we sympathize with those who may have fallen victim to these unscrupulous elements and advise Cross Riverians to be vigilant and to report any phone numbers or email addresses used by criminals purporting to be recruitment officers or relatives of the Governor’s Wife.” The statement said.
