Lagos – The Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) has said that it has not appointed agents to sell its loan assessment forms to the public.

The agency, which spoke through a statement on Tuesday, said it had come to its attention that certain individuals had been parading themselves as agents of the fund, selling loan assessment and job application forms.

The Executive Secretary of the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund, Akintunde Oyebode, who signed the statement, described such people as fake, devious and perpetuating criminal activities.

He stressed, “For the avoidance of doubt, please note the LSETF is not selling application forms or appointed any agent or agents to sell forms on its behalf.

“The Fund’s mission of creating employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for all Lagos residents, and its vision of ‘enabling Lagos residents to realise their aspirations by providing leverage and access to finance,’ do not align with such unscrupulous behaviour.”

He urged Lagos residents to report anyone who approached them as the Fund’s agent to the relevant law enforcement agencies.
