The newly-recruited teachers under the Oyo state’s Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) on Monday, February 1, started receiving their employment letters. This was done after a long period of scrutiny and verification to correct all errors that might have been noticed during and after the conduct of examination and oral test for the exercise.
This gathered that the chairman of the state TESCOM, Pastor Akinade Alamu, said the government approved 5,000 appointment letters for distribution, adding that 4,400 letters have been released. Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo has issued 5,000 appointment letters to newly recruited teachers in the state.
He said the remaining letters were withheld due to certain errors on the part of the applicants.
Alamu hinted that the errors included misspelt names as well as invalid emails among others, assuring that the letters would be collected immediately after correction of errors by the applicants.
The TESCOM boss mentioned that the letters were sent to the centralized zones in the 33 local government areas for collection in other to avoid overcrowding and to stick to the COVID-19 protocols.
He, therefore, implored the chosen candidates to resume immediately considering that the academic session has commenced.
The permanent secretary, TESCOM, Olabisi Oderinde, congratulated the selected candidates for their patience despite several breaks in the process of the appointment due to COVID-19. She urged them to prepare to work diligently, adding that this would bring the governor’s passion for education to reality. The zonal heads also commended the present administration for regular positive responses on education policies in the state and promised their unwavering support towards education development in the state.
