Following the recent announcement by Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, that he has given the go-ahead for the recruitment of more teachers for the state’s public primary and secondary schools, there have been speculations that the recruitment process has begun.
But a statement signed on Saturday by the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology in the state, Prof. Dahud Shangodoyin is warning members of the public to beware of fraudsters determined to take advantage of the announcement.
According to Shangodoyin, Makinde only “approved in principle the recruitment of the teachers” but the process of recruitment is yet to begin.
The commissioner urged members of the public to “beware of any online recruitment news, currently in circulation by fake sites.”
He stressed that “the application process will be announced through the government official platforms, in the newspapers and on the radio in due course.”
Newspeakonline recalls that Governor Makinde had on Saturday, October 19, 2019 while speaking at the grand finale of events marking 90th anniversary of Government College (GCI) Ibadan, disclosed that the state would soon advertise for the recruitment of teachers.
His words: “We will soon advertise vacancy to recruit teachers. If the PTA teachers are good enough and have the prerequisite qualifications, they will be employed. But the bottom-line is that the future of our children is at stake here. If we are saying that government is providing certain things and we cannot have value for those things, then it is a big problem and that is what we are faced with right now.”
