The Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYOSUBEB) issued a warning to the public on Friday over an internet post that claimed it had started the hiring process for the year 2022.
In a statement, Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, Executive Chairman of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, called the advertisement a hoax.
Adeniran warned job seekers to be aware of con artists using their social media accounts and websites as recruitment portals for the State Government, noting that the Board will formally go on the air to inform potential applicants once all the necessary steps have been taken.
Dr. Adeniran also stated 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, the supposed advertisements did not in any way emanate from the Board, nor from any Oyo State Government representative.
Adeniran said: “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”, he said.
“We hereby advise the general public against downloading any form online or paying anyone for any recruitment.
“Applicants should beware of fraudsters parading their websites as recruitment platforms for the council.
“The Board, when recruiting, will advertise through due process, which includes using National tabloids and not through any other website.”
Also, Dr. Adeniran has expressed dissatisfaction over the slow pace of work on some school projects in the state.
Adeniran worried that the multi-billion naira UBEC/SUBEB projects initiated to enhance the educational development in the State is already over-stretching its time-lapse.
The Chairman, who raised the concern during a meeting with the defaulting contractors in Ibadan, however, maintained that government would not hesitate to terminate henceforth, the projects of contractors who have breached the contractual agreement, adding that majority of these projects were awarded by the past administration.
