…Demand retraction from the offending website
Ibadan Polytechnic authorities have debunked a fake job alert currently making the rounds on social media today.
In a statement signed by the Polytechnic Registrar, Mrs. Modupe Theresa Fawale, the authorities of the Ibadan Polytechnic have confirmed that there is no ongoing recruitment or advertisement for teaching or non-teaching staff in the institution.
The statement also made it clear that advertisements are paid for and that the institution has not made any ad payments recently. They also called out akedeoyo.com for the misleading ad posted and have demanded an immediate retraction from the website.
“It is instructive to point out that journalism is not a kamikaze 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.”
