There is no truth in what is being circulated about His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik ordering a grant of 150 OMR for job seekers. The rumour spread on social media asking for job seekers to update their data with the Ministry of Manpower in order for the financial grant to be given. Times of Oman contacted the Ministry and an official stated, "This news is a rumor and it is not true, just as the Ministry is not within its competence for job seekers, but rather it is within the competence of the National Employment Center (NEC). “The Ministry called on everyone to take information from official sources and not to promote rumors and circulate them on social media.”
