OSUN State Government on Wednesday said the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board would conduct examination for applicants for teaching jobs in public schools in the state.
Besides, the government also said rigorous interviews would also be conducted by competent panels to select the best among the applicants.
Reacting to insinuations that the recruitment would be skewed to favour present and past members of Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme, the state Commissioner for Education, Mr. Folorunsho Oladoyin, assured applicants of a thorough exercise.
Oladoyin said, “It is still an exercise that will be done based on merit; nobody is planning to do it in a way that will help only Oyes Cadets to get the appointments.
“We want the best of the best as teachers to teach our children. How can we now think of such move as being peddled around? Governor Adegboyega Oyetola will never agree to that?”
