“The attention of the Delta State Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education has been drawn to a post on some WhatsApp groups that the ministry is recruiting teachers”.
A statement signed on Tuesday 25th August 2020, by the Basic and Secondary Education Commissioner, Mr. Patrick Ukah, in Asaba, advised members of the public to disregard the post as it is the handiwork of scammers who are out to deceive and possibly defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
According to the Commissioner, “For the avoidance of doubt, Delta State Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education is not recruiting teachers. If the ministry is to embark on a recruitment exercise, it will not be announced through WhatsApp message but through officially approved government mass media”.
The statement recalled that when the state government recruited 1,000 teachers last year, the recruitment announcement was not done via WhatsApp but through official publications in the media.
