Oyo to recruit 7,000 teachers, 100 care givers

The Oyo State Government says it will recruit 7,000 teachers into public primary schools and employ 100 care givers into the special needs sub-sector in the State.

Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, OYOSUBEB who addressed journalists in Ibadan, said efforts were ongoing to recruit the teachers in fulfilment of Governor Seyi Makinde’s promise.

“In fulfilment of his electoral promise and the yearnings of the people of Oyo State, occasioned by the gap of Teachers in our public primary schools, Governor Seyi Makinde has approved the recruitment of 7,000 teachers in our public primary schools. In addition, he also approved the recruitment of 100 care givers in our special schools”, he said.

Adeniran said the recruitment needed to be brought to the public domain, to avoid misleading information by scammers.

While appealing to intending applicants not to fall victim of fraudulent people, and be wary of scammers, the OYOSUBEB boss stressed that the Board had not appointed anyone to be an agent to the Board

“The Board has just started preliminary work on the recruitment process. The stages to follow to have a free, fair, credible exercise will emanate from this Board, signed by me”, Adeniran said.

He advised applicants not to hesitate to come to the Board to make enquiries and not rely on third-party information.

“No Staff member has been empowered to collect money from applicants. We thank His Excellency for living up to his words. He fulfilled his promise and may God give him divine wisdom to navigate the affairs of the State”, he added.

He said at the next stage, the Board would announce when applicants could apply, saying the Board was working with other relevant Agencies for a seamless exercise.

Adeniran said the Board would however comply strictly with the governor’s directive to conduct an exercise, based on merit.
