Edo State Government has suspended the recruitment exercise by the state Post-Primary Education Board, PPEB, following the allegation of fraud that marred the exercise.
In a statement by Mr. Peter Okhiria, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, the government said: “Preliminary investigations into the exercise revealed that it was fraught with unwholesome practices as the exercise sacrificed merit on the altar of selfish motives.
“Consequently, in accordance with our commitment to transparency and accountability, the exercise is suspended and the appointment letters issued are hereby revoked. All those purportedly offered appointment through the exercise are advised to stay away.
“Government will review the entire exercise and give room to all to re-apply and only those who scale through the fresh test which will be transparently conducted, will be offered appointment.”
