Lagos State Government has raised the alarm over the activities of some unscrupulous individuals said to selling fake loan assessment forms of the N25 billion Lagos State Employment Trust Fund.
The state Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mr. Babatunde Durosinmi-Etti, who drew the general public attention to their nefarious activities said no forms has been made available by the Employment Trust Fund Board to access funds.
The Commissioner noted that the Trust Fund Board has not authorised any agent to sell loan assessment forms on its behalf or in the name of the state government.
He added that “members of the public are hereby advised not to purchase any form purportedly issued by the Board or State Government in relation to securing loan from LSETF.”
Durosinmi-Etti explained that information about modalities for accessing the Loan will be made public by the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund at the appropriate time.
He implored the general public to report persons involved in the fraudulent to security agencies.
