The Osun State Government has debunked carrying out mass recruitment into the state civil service, noting that the current sale of forms by the civil service is an official routine.
This was revealed in a statement issued by the commissioner for information and Public Enlightenment, Kolapo Alimi, on Friday,.
He said the state government said the only approved recruitment drive currently going on in the state is the sale and issuance of forms for the engagement of additional 5000 teachers and 250 education officers.
He revealed that an official announcement would be released to the public should the government embark on a general mass recruitment exercise.
The statement reads, “Osun state government under the leadership of His Excellency, Senator Ademola Adeleke, is currently not carrying out mass recruitment into the Civil Service as being wrongly assumed with the ongoing sales of employment forms by the Civil Service Commission
“The sales of forms by the Osun State Civil Service Commission, it must be emphasized, is a normal official routine.
“Members of the public, particularly employment seekers, should not, in any way, misconstrue it to be a scheme by the Ademola Adeleke-led administration for mass recruitment into the state civil service.
