More than 12,000 jobseekers looking for employment, including those with physical challenges, have submitted their applications for the recently announced teaching positions in public secondary schools within Ekiti State.

Mr. Michael Omolayo, the Permanent Secretary of the Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), expressed his contentment with the qualifying examination conducted for the recruitment process. He further revealed that the government plans to recruit 500 candidates who have successfully passed the examination.


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 appreciation 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.
