Nationnewslead reports that The Ekiti State Government on Thursday said no fewer than 600 workers have been recruited to boost the state’s workforce.

The Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Akin Omole who said this in a statement, 138 were recruited into the Ekiti civil service through a fair recruitment exercise and have assumed duty while 21 others are yet to collect their appointment letters.

He added that 53 candidates were also injected into the Ekiti Board for Technical and Vocational Education and have been duly assigned to offices, except four of them that were yet to also collect their letters of appointment.

According to him, 400 new teachers were, in addition, recruited into the public secondary schools in the state in the recent recruitment exercise purposely to boost the Ekiti education sector.

While debunking insinuation in some quarters that the recruitment exercise in the state was a charade, Omole noted that 200 workers were converted from the non-teaching to the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).

 

He added that in spite of the hiccups in the recruitment process occasioned by the outbreak of the Covid-19 and the ‘ENDSARS’ protest, the SUBEB has begun verification of credentials of candidates before issuance of appointment letters.

The Commissioner added that the efforts are also in the pipeline for the Office of Establishment to release the results of applicants into the junior cadre of the Civil Service.

He said the State government should be commended for its efforts towards bridging the gap of unemployment in the state in spite of the global pandemic that practically shut down the entire system.

Omole stated that the recruitment exercise was almost concluded before the upsurge of the Coronavirus pandemic, adding that very little could be done until after the lockdown.
