National Lottery Regulatory Commission Debunk Fake Recruitment Exercise

According to the press statement report on the official site of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission signed by Assistant Director public affairs, Magnus Ekechukwu debunks the fake recruitment exercise going around on social media.

The letter read, “The attention of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) has been drawn to the activities of intent fraudsters disguising as a recruitment agency. This unscrupulous person, particularly the, is circulating fake recruitment notices on social media as well as masquerading as recruitment agencies and issuing bogus NLRC recruitment forms 2020/2021 with spurious claims and promises of job offer into the NLRC“.

The NLRC is the regulatory responsible for regulating sports betting, Lottery, and Casino games. The National Lottery Regulatory Commission was established through the National Lottery Act of 2005 and signed into law on the 30th March 2005. The Commission was primarily born out of the need to regulate lottery businesses’ operations to promote transparency and accountability, such as online sports betting, Lottery, mobile Lottery, and casino. As a result of this, we wish to state categorically that the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) is currently not conducting any recruitment exercise and has not engaged any person, agent, or consultant to act as intermediaries for any recruitment exercise.

Further, for the avoidance of doubt, we wish to retreat that employment into the NLRC is carried out following extant rules guiding such exercises in the Nigeria Public service in line with the due process philosophy of the Federal Government. However, the authority, therefore, advises public members to discountenance any information circulating in the public space, particularly on social media, regarding NLRC 2020/201 recruitment. The public should also note that recruitment into the NLRC is never done on a monetary basis; besides, it is guided by merit and transparency. The beneficiaries undergo a series of screening and vetting processes and procedures through which only the best are considered.

However, earlier, the Nigerian Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) and the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) strengthen collaboration against remote gaming and others. In its bid to give more impetus to the fight against Remote Gaming regarding betting and gaming companies poaching of players from Nigerian space without recourse to the country’s enabling regulatory laws. The authority is to go into alliance and cooperation for a more imperative and responsible agency in response. At the same time, it is evolving to keep pace with the dynamic and growing complexity of the modern lottery industry, which features multi-channel availability.

The electronic delivery of play, and complex financial transaction the authority, as shown, is readiness combat remote gaming which had been a challenge in the Nigerian Lottery and Gaming Industry. While the administration stresses that the Commission would not rest until it overcomes the challenges of financial leakages occasioned by remote gaming.
