Osun govt sacks Teacher for allegedly duping job seekers

The Osun state government has suspended a teacher, Abimbola Olowookere, for allegedly duping some recently recruited teachers to the tune of N30,000, claiming to influence their posting.

It was reported to the Osun State Department of Education that the said Mr. Olowookere collected the money from the teachers in the Osun East Education District to help them secure their preferred school of choice somewhere outside the district.

Briefing newsmen on the matter, the State Commissioner for Education, Hon. Folorunsho Oladoyin, who condemned the act, advised recently hired teachers not to listen to anyone who is demanding money or other rewards from them under the guise of influencing their posts.

He said the state government recruited the first batch of 1,000 teachers with a determination to send them to schools and cities where their services are fundamentally needed.

The Commissioner stressed that the dispatch of the new teachers rests solely with the State Department of Education and the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), which has the official responsibility of knowing where the teachers are needed.

Oladoyin then warned any teacher or official of government who is still in the act of collecting money before rendering one service or the other to desist from it or be ready to face the full wrath of the law.
