The Oyo State government on Tuesday opened a portal for the recruitment of 7,000 primary school teachers and 100 caregivers for special schools across the state.

The State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) executive chairman, Nureni Adeniran, announced this at a news conference in Ibadan.

According to Mr Adeniran, the recruitment portal is

He said the portal would be active from 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, to July 9.

He urged all intending applicants to be wary of scammers who might open portals other than the official one released by SUBEB.

“The job portal will register each candidate with his/her email, phone number and National Identification Number (NIN), among other requirements.

“At the end of the three weeks, the portal will be shut down, and we will go back to the drawing board to do our analysis to shortlist candidates and see those who actually complied with the requirements,” Mr Adeniran said.

He said the shortlisted candidates would thereafter be invited for computer-based tests.

“After the CBT examination, the number of those that passed will determine those that will proceed to the next stage, which is oral interview,” he stated.

The SUBEB chairman urged all intending applicants to contact the phone number and email addresses provided on the website for free support services if they encounter complaints or challenges during the online application process.

He advised every intending applicant to upload the necessary documents while assuring the general public that the exercise would be transparent and merit-based.

Mr Adeniran said the decision to embark on the recruitment to reduce unemployment rate in the state.

“In addition, the administration of Gov. Seyi Makinde wants to expand the job space in the basic education sub-sector and those interested in working as caregivers, knowing fully well that education is a major pillar of the administration,” he said.
