PLATFORMTIMES conducted a check on the circulated messaged and found out that it was wrong information.
In a statement, registrar of the institution, Mrs Modupe Theresa Fawale, insisted that the school was not recruiting.
She warned job seekers against falling victims to fraudsters who are out to defraud job seekers through fake job links.
Fawale noted that the need to issue a disclaimer is necessary in view of the fake job links that are being circulated through online platforms.
The Registrar who described the job links as fake urged members of the public to always verify job links before they apply.
She also advised members of the public to always seek clarifications from the agencies and institutions concerned.
“The Authorities of the Polytechnic, Ibadan have debunked a fake job alert attributed to the Institution by an online medium, Akede Oyo.”
“The Institution has not made any public or external advertisement for positions of either lecturers or non-teaching staff, she said.
“Advertisements are paid for and in this case, the Institution has not made any payment for any advertisement to any medium including akedeoyo.com nor has it presented any for public or external consumption.
“It is instructive to point out that journalism is not akamikaze profession where risks are taken without safety measures.What akedeoyo.com has done is a disservice to journalism and to the public.
“The Authorities of the Polytechnic Ibadan expects immediate retraction from the outfit.
“We are also using this medium to appeal to Media Practitioners most especially online journalists to make clarifications from concerned establishments before publishing. The Maxim of journalism is when in doubt, leave out.”
