Boss Gida Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF)

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha has warned conspirators of fake news to desist from such act or face the full wrath of the law.

The SGF gave the warning after his attention was drawn to false information circulating on the social media and through text messages, urging members of the public to submit their Curriculum Vitae at a fee, to a non-existing desk at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, to facilitate their selection as Cabinet Members.

“I am using this opportunity to warn originators of such fraudulent request to desist forthwith from using the name of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in their dubious and nefarious plan to fleece unsuspecting members of the public” he warned.

The SGF  advised the general public to disregard such information as the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has no such mandate and has never requested for such information.
