FUOYE has disproved yet another fictitious job advertisement that has gone popular on social media, according to the university’s spokesperson.
The bogus announcement was titled “Non-Academic Staff Recruitment at Federal University Oye-Ekiti(FUOYE)” and contained the following text:
A portion of the statement reads, in part, as follows:
“The Federal University of Oye in Ekiti was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in accordance with an executive order issued by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, to establish nine Federal Universities in Nigeria.”
The Federal University of Oye in Ekiti is now recruiting for the available posts.
“All adequately qualified applicants who are currently employed as tenured employees on the University’s payroll and who seek to be converted from their current classification to fill the empty non-academic posts indicated below are encouraged to apply.”
As stated in a statement issued on Thursday by the FUOYE Public Relations Officer, Foluso Ogunmodede, the bogus recruitment notice for non-academic staff included phony positions for Administrative Officer 11, higher executive officer, security officer accountant and auditor among other positions.
In addition to reminding the public that there is no such vacancy notice emanating from the Management, FUOYE, through its Public Relations Officer, cautions members of the public to disregard the advertisement, adding that any vacancy announcement will be made known to the public through legitimate means whenever there is a need to do so in the institution.
Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard the bogus advertisement posted on the internet in order to avoid falling into the hands of internet fraudsters who are currently masquerading as legitimate businesses on social media and defrauding innocent and unsuspecting Nigerians of their money.
