The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, has disowned social media posts suggesting he is helping job seekers get employment to the Federal Polytechnic Ayede.
A statement from the office of the minister clarified the situation on Thursday.
The statement read: “The attention of the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, has been drawn to a fake post circulating via WhatsApp and other social media asking people to submit applications to him for employment into the Federal Polytechnic Ayede, Ayelade, Ogbomoso, Oyo State.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Federal Polytechnic Ayede, being an academic institution, falls under the supervision and oversight of the Federal Ministry of Education, so application for employment into the institution cannot then be directed to Mr. Dare, who is the Minister of Youth and Sports Development.
“Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard the fake message asking them to submit CVs and application letters “to Sunday Dare’s office @ Alata plastic store opposite Anglican Grammar school” as this is a calculated attempt at mischief.
“The Minister of Youth and Sports Development is not responsible for recruitment into the Federal Polytechnic Ayede Ayelade, Ogbomoso Oyo State,” it concluded.
