Lagos State Government denies false Covid19 job vacancy advert



The Government of Lagos State has denied the advertisement of job vacancies in Lagos isolation centres which is being circulated on social media.

It was reported that the Lagos State government relieved 30 health workers of their appointment in various isolation centres in the state.

Mr. Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, Director Public Affairs, State Ministry of Health, issued a statement on Friday saying the job vacancies being circulated on social media was done by fraudsters.

It said “The attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to an advert making the rounds, especially on social media about job vacancies at COVID-19 Lagos isolation centres.

“We wish to categorically state that this job vacancy advert did not emanate from the Lagos State Government, the Ministry of Health or the COVID-19 Lagos Incident Command System.

“Citizens are therefore advised to disregard this job vacancy advert in its entirety and rely only on official communication channels of the Lagos State Government and the Ministry of Health for news and information on COVID-19 Lagos Response,” the statement reads in part.

Mr. Ogunbawo stated that the Lagos State Government would verify the source of the advert and punish the author for circulating a false advert
