The Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), has given fresh on the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise in the state.
Mr Israel Famurewa, Chairman, Osun SUBEB who spoke during a programme, organised by the by Ministry of Information and Civic Engagement on Sunday in Osogbo said the government will ensure merit and create a level-playing field for all applicants in the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise in the state.
Famurewa said government would not allow any form of partiality in getting the best hands for the teaching profession in the state.
The SUBEB boss said that Gov. Gboyega Oyetola was not interested in favouritism or nepotism, but merit and professionalism in the running of the affairs of the state.
He said, “There is no gainsaying the fact that education remains the bedrock upon which all other societal structures are built and this has necessitated the need to structure it on quality background and value system.
“More importantly, the outbreak of COVID-19 has further compelled every responsible government to bring on board capable hands who are well rooted, not only in teaching skills, but also digital dynamics for better academic output.
“This is why the Oyetola-led administration will not leave any stone unturned in ensuring that the state teachers’ recruitment exercise places premium on professionalism, expertise and refined competence”.
