The Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYOSUBEB), on Friday warned the public, especially the job seekers, against falling victims of scammers over purported recruitment exercise for 2022.
The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran gave the warning in a statement by Olamide Adeniji, Head, Media Team, OYOSUBEB, on Friday in Ibadan.
Adeniran advised job seekers to be wary of fraudsters parading their social media platforms and websites as recruitment platforms for the state government.
According to him, when all procedures have been completed, the Board will formally come on air to let intending applicants know.
Adeniran also said that the Board would always carry out its genuine recruitment exercise through due process, “and not through the social media or any unofficial website”.
He said that the purported advertisements did not in any way emanate from the Board, nor from any Oyo State Government representative.
“The attention of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board has been drawn to a false advertisement purporting an ongoing recruitment exercise of the Board for the year 2022 on some social media platforms and websites.
“The Board, hereby informs the general public that there are no such online recruitment as portrayed by the websites.
“The Board will recruit and procedures for recruitment are being put in place.
When this is completed, we will formally announce to the public.
“We hereby advise the general public against downloading any form online or paying anyone for any recruitment.
“Applicants should, also beware of fraudsters parading their websites as recruitment platforms for the council.
“The Board, when recruiting, will advertise through due process, including using the National tabloids and not through any other website,” Adeniran said.
He, however, expressed dissatisfaction with the slow pace of work on some school projects in the state.
Adeniran said that the multi-billion naira projects initiated to enhance the educational development in the state were already over-stretching its time-lapse.
The board chairman, who raised the concern at a meeting with the defaulting contractors in Ibadan, said that government would not hesitate to terminate the projects of any contractors who breached the contractual agreement.
He said that majority of the projects were awarded by the past administration.
