Oyo state government has said that the Computer Based Test (CBT) for teacher’s recruitment would hold in April on a soon-to-be-announced date.
This is also as the government noted that applicants’ competence, qualifications, and ability will be major determinants for their final recruitment
The State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr Olasunkanmi Olaleye, made this after Tuesday’s state executive council meeting.
Olaleye said a total of 156,000 persons applied for 7,000 teaching jobs and 3,600 non-teaching jobs advertised by the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) Oyo State.
While 65,000 persons applied for the non-teaching vacancies, 91,000 asked to fill 7,000 teaching positions.
Explaning reasons for the postponement, Olaleye said the test could not hold this month because several of the proposed CBT centres were to be utilised for the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
He warned applicants against giving money to anyone to assist in their recruitment.
