It was claimed that in the purported Navy supplementary list, all 44 candidates are northerners.
The Nigeria Navy has reacted to allegations that its supplementary list is filled with mainly northerners.
The Navy described the report as “fake”.
It was reported that in the purported Navy supplementary list, all 44 candidates are northerners.
But a statement by the Director of Information, Naval Headquarters, Cdr Suleman Dahun, said the list did not emanate from the Nigerian Navy headquarters.
He maintained that it was fake and Nigerians should treat the list as “a pitiable ploy of mischief makers and idle minds with intent on creating ill feelings amongst the Nigerian public thereby stoking sectional and religious sensibilities.”
Dahun further stated that Navy would explore legal means to seek redress over the mischievous story.
He advised members of the public to visit www.joinnigeriannavy.com for authentic information on NN recruitment exercises.
