Alamu had recently informed the general public that all applicants for the teaching appointment would have to upload their credentials on the State’s website to allow for equal participation and open process.
He said the examination would run through the week from 7 am till 6 pm except on Sunday, reiterating the fact that whoever that could not upload his or her credentials to TESCOM’s portal before Tuesday should not bother to write the test.
“The examination will be starting on Tuesday, 11th August 2020 and will run through the week till Saturday, they will be starting daily from 7 am till 6 pm and the results will be communicated to the applicants through the email they put in their registration and through SMS.

Alamu hailed the State administration’s resolve to conduct computer-based examination for all candidates applying for teaching appointment in the State, as according to him, the move has portrayed the government as being open in all its governance processes.
Reacting to the issue of private school owners demanding a quarter of school fees for the period students were at home due to COVID-19 pandemic from their students, the TESCOM Chairman said the private schools ought to have consulted with parents and other stakeholders before deciding on such.
He asked the private school owners concerned to see the effects of COVID-19 as that which affected them and the parents as well, urging them to desist from charging the students without appreciating the consequence of the current situation on the financial strength of the individual home.
