Oyo SUBEB Warns Job Seekers Against Recruitment Scam
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
The Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (Oyo SUBEB) has stressed that it has not started its recruitment process, warning job seekers to be careful of those claiming to be the board’s agents and promising them a slot in the state’s civil service.
The Chairman of the organisation, Mr Nureni Adeniran, gave this warning in a statement to alert members of the public of those perpetrating recruitment scams with the sole intent of defrauding the innocent public.
He distanced the agency from the purported list circulating on social media, advising the public to be vigilant and never deal with scammers who pose as recruitment agents for the board.
Mr Adeniran said the management has also begun moves to identify those perpetrating these fraudulent activities, promising that when caught, they will be handed over to appropriate quarters, but emphasised that job seekers must “please shun any purported list, circulating on the social media claiming we are recruiting.”
He stated that the board would go through a 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 Oyo SUBEB.
“They collect huge sums of money from unsuspecting victims with the promise to provide them employment at OYOSUBEB,” he disclosed.
“Today, we saw a list of names published by some fraudulent people, claiming those are the people invited for the Oyo SUBEB 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,” Mr Adeniran said.
The Oyo SUBEB boss emphatically stated that the organisation was not conducting any recruitment at the moment and importantly that it does not conduct recruitment exercises through back door channels.
“When Oyo SUBEB 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,” Mr Adeniran said.
