THE Management of the Rivers State Universal Basic Education Board (RSUBEB) has advised members of the public to ignore rumours making the rounds regarding any employment exercise in the Board.
In a press statement signed by the Executive Chairman RSUBEB, Ven (Dr) Fyneface Akah, Rivers UBE pointed that, “the general public is therefore advised to discountenance any rumour of secret employment by the Rivers State UBE Board.”
Akah also specifically warned, professional teachers seeking employment in the State Public Service should note “that no recruitment, whether secret or open was currently on-going.”
According to Akah, the explanation had become necessary because, “Rivers State Universal Basic Education Board (RSUBEB) has been inundated with inquiries about secret employment being carried out by the Board through the Ministry of Education.
“In some cases, the inquirers swear that persons known to them already have appointment letters in evidence of the purported secret employment.”
In dismissing those false information, Akah emphasized that Rivers UBE Board advised that there was no recruitment going on for teachers in the Rivers State Public Service.
He “advised members of the public to report to the Police or other law enforcement agents, scammers seeking to obtain money from them by claims of secret employment.”
In the statement, the Executive Chairman further stated: “Furthermore, letters of appointment purportedly issued appointees through the Ministry of Education are invalid, as neither the letter head nor the signatory is known to the Board.
“The Board would like to stress that by law and practice, any recruitment for vacant positions into the Rivers State Public Service is advertised by the appropriate authority on conventional media platforms for the information of the public.”
