The Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr Oluremi Sopeyin, has debunked a job vacancy advertisement credited to the Board as untrue, with a warning to members of the public to be mindful of the activities of dubious individuals.
Dr Sopeyin, who issued the warning following the spread of the fake information on the social media, said that the state government was devising means of bringing those behind the misleading information to book.
According to him, the initiators of the message had requested that holders of the National Certificate of Education and Bachelor of Science (Education) degree come to the SUBEB headquarters on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 to fill forms for vacancy positions.
Sopeyin disclosed that the government had not started recruitment of teachers, adding that the agency would follow due process in announcing its vacancies, especially through the state government’s official website, social media platforms and other credible sources.
He, therefore, advised job seekers to be more vigilant “in order not to fall prey to persons with ulterior intentions, who use job vacancies to swindle unsuspecting members of the public of their hard-earned money.”
