12,000 Applicants Hustle for 500 Ekiti Teaching Jobs

Over 12,000 applicants, including people with disability, have applied for the recently advertised teaching jobs in public secondary schools in Ekiti State.

The Permanent Secretary, Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission, Mr Michael Omolayo, who expressed satisfaction with the qualifying examination for the recruitment, revealed that 500 successful candidates would be hired by the government.

Omolayo said in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday that “the qualifying examination would be followed by two other stages of oral interview and micro teaching for successful candidates for the purpose of promoting merit and ability over mediocrity.”

He said, “The commission is poised to engage the best hands for the jobs among the teeming unemployed graduates.

“Teachers who are prepared to offer their best for the development of education in Ekiti State would be engaged for various subjects in the sciences, commercial/vocational, arts and social sciences at the conclusion of the recruitment processes.”

Omolayo also expressed gratitude to Governor Biodun Oyebanji, “for granting approval for the appointment of 500 fresh teachers to fill the consequential vacancies in the state public secondary schools.”

He described the qualifying examination, which held at the Ekiti State University last Saturday, as a great success, saying the exam was conducted in a free, fair and peaceful atmosphere.
