Recruitment: Ondo Govt goes tough over payment by Applicants

The Ondo State Teaching Service Commission has raised an alarm over the activities of some people who are extorting money from applicants with the promise to give them teaching employment in government schools.

Sunday Telegraph reports that about 32,000 applicants have applied for the one thousand teaching jobs available at the state Teaching Service Commission in which the commission has conducted an online examination for all applicants seeking appointment in the public secondary schools in the State.

Speaking on the development in a statement released by the Head of the Press and Public Relations Unit of the State Teaching Service Commission, Goodluck Akinyomi alleged that some miscreants and touts claiming to be acting on behalf of the commission are going about extorting money and collating names with particulars of some applicants who have taken the online recruitment examination for teaching appointment with the state Teaching Service Commission.

Akinyomi in a statement said “It has to be noted and understood that Ondo State Teaching Service Commission does not and will not engage anyone, group of people, Agents or third parties, as so called, to act on its behalf while carrying out its statutory duties.

“The Commission wishes to reemphasise that recruitment of teachers into the Teaching Service of Ondo State will be purely based on merit devoid of any influence, corruption or nepotism as the Commission is not going to compromise its integrity.

“So, any applicant who falls into the deception does so at his or her own risk as the Ondo State Teaching Service Commission will not and never employ any applicant through the backdoor.”
