The Federal Government in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), on August 31 2021 launched the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme (NJFP).
Although, the programme was announced in June 2021 it was officially launched in August. The youth empowerment initiative is expected to train 20,000 graduates annually.
The programme has an online portal for applications, however a message circulating on WhatsApp shows an entirely different web link to the application.
The link in circulation is the website for the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme.
The FactCheckHub observed the website attached to the claim has similar characteristics of phishing websites earlier debunked here.
The suspected phishing website’s claims the application deadline is on September 25 2021 whereas the application deadline on the official website is October 20 2021.
Based on the above findings the website in circulation is different from that of the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme and therefore, the viral claim is FALSE.
