Oyo Govt Suspends Recruitment Process of Persons Living with Disabilities

The Oyo state government, through its Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), has suspended the recruitment process of persons living with disabilities into the state workforce following allegations of list manipulation.

TESCOM chairman, Pastor Akinade Alamu, announced that the ongoing recruitment of persons living with disabilities into both teaching and non-teaching service had been placed on hold shortly after a meeting held between the Joint Association of Persons Living With Disabilities (PLWD) and top government officials, following a protest staged against TESCOM by persons living with a disability, alleging shortchange in the recruitment of the teaching and non-teaching staff by the State’s Teaching Service Commission.

According to the TESCOM chairman, the recruitment process of persons living with disabilities into the state workforce has been suspended pending the committee’s outcome to be set up to look into the alleged manipulation leveled against the commission by the persons living with disabilities.

Pastor Alamu stated that the committee would be set up immediately to investigate the list and integrity of the protesters’ allegations, adding that anyone found wanting would be adequately dealt with.

Government functionaries at the meeting with TESCOM chairman, Pastor Akinade Alamu, are commissioner for Education Science, And Technology, Barrister Olasunkanmi Olaleye; commissioner for Establishment and Training, Professor Daud Sangodoyin.

Others are the Executive Assistant to the governor on Administration, Reverend Idowu Ogedengbe, and the Executive Assistant on Disabilities, Barrister Ayodele Adekanbi.
