Oyo govt to recruit 7,000 primary school teachers – SUBEB boss

The executive chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (OYOSUBEB), Dr. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran, on Friday said the state government was set to recruit 7,000 teachers into public primary schools.

Adeniran, who disclosed this in Ibadan during a press briefing, declared that the state government would also employ 100 care-givers into the special needs sub-sector in the state.

He said efforts had been made “before now to recruit the teachers in fulfilment of Governor Seyi Makinde’s promise.”

He said, “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.”

Adeniran said the recruitment exercise needed to be brought to the public domain to avoid misleading information by scammers, urging intending applicants not to fall victim to fraudulent people.

He said the Board had not appointed anyone to be its agent, adding that it had 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. 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 said.
