The Oyo State Universal Education Board (SUBEB) has warned members of the public to be wary of individuals going around extorting money from people with the promise to facilitate their recruitment into the board.
The Chairman, Oyo SUBEB, Dr Nureni Adeniran who disclosed this while interacting with journalists at his office in Ibadan on Monday said many people have contacted him and those close to him on the purported recruitment.
He advised parents, guardians and job seekers to be careful so as not to fall into the hands of the unscrupulous elements that were poised to dupe them in the guise of selling employment forms and assisting in getting jobs.
His words: “Oyo State Government’s attention has been drawn to activities of syndicates extorting money from unsuspecting members of the public under the guise of recruitment in the teaching services of the state. Please disregard such information, as it is false and misleading.
“We are using this medium to call on the general public, especially parents, guardians as well as our young job seekers not to fall victims of these fraudsters.”
He said efforts were on to track and apprehend the fraudsters, adding that the necessary medium of relating with the public would be used whenever there would be need for recruitment.
“The general public should note that Oyo SUBEB has not begun any form of recruitment exercise. It is pertinent that we state that Oyo SUBEB or the State Government is currently not recruiting. Therefore, the information is targeted at deceiving unsuspecting members of the public”
“We would be transparent in our operations and make any recruitment exercise known to the public, through legitimate means whenever the State will be recruiting.
“Oyo State Government will announce this, when the time comes. We would be transparent in our operations and make any recruitment exercise known to the public, through legitimate means,” he added.
