769 workers in Osun State risk sack as they have been blamed for securing their
positions with questionable certificates.
The administration representative, Mr Adelani Baderinwa in an announcement in Osogbo on Friday evening said a firm, The Captain Consultants, connected by the state Government five years back to confirm the outcome and other important records of the workers in the state has finished its task and presented its report.
Baderinwa said the screening of the workers’ credentials came on the heel of controversies and reported forged results with which some of the workers allegedly secured job in the Osun civil service.
His words “At the commencement of the screening exercise in 2015, all the civil servants in the state were asked to submit their credentials in their personal files, from which the Captain Consultants firm got access to their results and begun the verification exercise.
“Each and every result submitted by the workers were verified in their various secondary schools, post secondary schools and tertiary institutions.
“Some of the workers who were suspected to have forged/fake results were summoned by the firm and asked to present original results or go to their various schools for either attestation or re-confirmation.
“The firm, on its own approached the schools for ‘confirmation of results’ of the affected workers for which they were obliged.
Baderinwa said the verification process uncovered serious certificate infraction on the part of some of the workers across Ministries, Departments and Agencies of the Government.
He said “In some cases, as discovered in the verification process, some of the affected workers used another person’s result, while some forged their secondary and post secondary schools results to secure job in the civil service.”
