The Oyo State government has directed that all newly appointed teachers into its services resume immediately.
This is as it confirmed the distribution of over 4,400 employment letters to successful applicants.
It said the immediate resumption order was in view of the fact that the academic session had started.
The state’s Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) chairman, Akinade Alamu, disclosed this in a release made available to EduCeleb.com in Ibadan on Tuesday.
According to him, the government approved 5,000 appointment letters for distribution and 4,400 letters have been released by TESCOM while the remaining were withheld due to certain errors discovered on the part of the applicants.
He said the errors included misspelt names, as well as invalid emails among others, assuring those yet to receive their letters that they would receive it immediately after correction of errors are made by the applicants.
Mr Alamu said the collection of the employment letters was decentralised to avoid overcrowding at the state secretariat and to prevent violation of the COVID- 19 safety protocols.
“While congratulating the successful applicants, we want to appeal to those that are also successful but yet to get their letters to exercise patience.
“We discovered that 600 letters had errors that needed to be rectified, that will be sorted and corrected as we speak and will be distributed as well,” Mr Alamu said.
Also, the TESCOM permanent secretary, Olabisi Oderinde congratulated the successful candidates and commended them for their patience in spite of the several breaks in the process of the appointment due to COVID-19.
She charged the new teachers to prepare to work diligently to enable the governor’s vision for education to become a reality.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
