Oyo State government has threatened to prosecute some undesirable elements, who perpetrate recruitment scams with the sole intent of defrauding innocent public.
This came on the heels of a purported list circulating on social media claiming that the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, OYOSUBEB, had started its recruitment process.
The executive chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYOSUBEB), Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, advised the public to be vigilant and never deal with scammers who pose as recruitment agents for the Board.
Adeniran said the management had also begun moves to identify those perpetrating these fraudulent activities, promising that when caught they will be handed over to appropriate quarters.
He also cautioned job-seekers saying, “Please shun any purported list, circulating on the social media claiming we are recruiting”.
The SUBEB boss added that the board would go through due and transparent process in its recruitment exercise.
“On repeated occasions, we have cautioned the general public to be vigilant and circumspect not to deal with scammers who pose as recruitment agents or staff members of OYOSUBEB.
“They collect huge sums of money from unsuspecting victims with the promise to provide them employment at OYOSUBEB,” the statement read.
“Today, we saw a list of names published by some fraudulent people, claiming those are the people invited for the OYOSUBEB job interview.
“On the list, their interview was scheduled for Tuesday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at an unknown venue. We are on it and anyone caught disseminating this kind of information, will be dealt with, according to the law”, Adeniran said.
Adeniran, therefore stated that OYOSUBEB was not conducting any recruitment at the moment, and importantly that it did not conduct recruitment exercises through back door channels.
“When OYOSUBEB plans to expand its workforce and seek to recruit competent hands to carry out the task of improving the state’s education sector, the public can be rest assured that we would follow appropriate channels and processes in doing so; including advertisements on public channels of communication, followed by rigorous screening, interviews and examination exercises”, Adeniran said.
