Babatunde Abegunde, Chairman, Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), has made it known that the state government was making plans to recruit more teaching and non-teaching staff to fill the existing vacancies in the state secondary schools.
He stated that the ongoing verification of workers in the schools would reconfirm the number of vacancies and as well correct the exiting data of teaching and non teaching staff in the schools.
Abegunde spoke at Aramoko Ekiti while addressing secondary school staff from Efon and Ekiti West LGAs who converged at Aramoko District Commercial Grammar School, for the verification exercise.
“There has been lpo-sideness in the distribution of staff. Teachers will henceforth be deployed, irrespective of geographical location to areas where their services would be most needed across the state.
“The ongoing comprehensive verification exercise being undertaken by the commission was targeted at getting accurate data of secondary school staff in the state,” he stated.
The TESCOM boss stressed that the verication exercise was result-oriented as it was capable of detecting what the biometric pay system might not capture, particularly members of staff who might have absconded from their duty post.
Mr. Tayo Omirin, Principal of Aramoko District Commercial Grammar School, commeneded the efforts of the state government on the verification exercise, adding that the exercise aimed at ascertaining the number of teachers in the state should be repeated every two years.
