It has come to the notice of the Management of the University of Benin that the name of the Vice chancellor, Professor Lilian I. Salami and that of the University are being used to scam unsuspecting members of the public with regards to employment and admissions. For the avoidance of doubt, the Management of the University wants the public to note the following:
-That the University of Benin is currently not employing any category of workers in line with the federal government’s embargo on employment.
-That only the office of the Registrar is authorised to advertise for vacancies and engage due mechanisms whenever the embargo on employment is lifted by the federal government.
-That no money is charged at any stage before employment is given.
-That admissions into the University’s academic programmes (full time and part time) outside the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Examinations are done through the office of the Registrar, while payments are made to the University of Benin, only, through remita. Any request for payment to be made to any personal or group accounts is to be disregarded.
Finally, that the Vice Chancellor, as a deliberate action, is not on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. Therefore, all accounts bearing her name and pictures on these platforms are fake.
Please be informed.
