By Nurat Uthman

The Oyo State government, on Tuesday, opened a portal for the recruitment of 7,000 teachers for the state’s public primary schools.

The Chairman of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran, told newsmen that the job portal was scheduled to come alive at 6 pm on Tuesday.

Adeniran said the recruitment was part of the state government’s bid to reduce unemployment among its citizenry.

The portal, according to Adeniran, would register each candidate with his/her email, phone number and National Identification Number, among other requirements, with a view to providing them with jobs suitable for them, either as teachers or caregivers.

“The government of Oyo State wants to expand the job space in the basic education sub-sector and those who are interested in working as caregivers.

“Education is a major pillar of Governor Seyi Makinde ‘s administration. We are going to have an inclusive government that will utilise valuable potential that abounds in the state and that’s why we are employing new primary school teachers.

“Applicants can channel their complaints, or challenges encountered in the process of the online application through the support service to the phone number and email provided on the website for free support services,” Adeniran said.
