In assuring the stakeholders that the Osun State Government would not allow any form of partiality in getting the best hands for the teaching profession in the state, Hon. (Engr.) Israel Ajibola Famurewa (FNSE), Chairman, Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) has said the government will ensure merit and create a level-playing field for all applicants in the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise in the state.

The SUBEB Chair, who stated this at a programme organised by the Ministry of Information and Civic Engagement Sunday, in Osogbo, the state capital, said government would not allow any form of partiality in getting the best hands for the teaching profession in the state.

Governor Adegboyega Oyetola is not interested in favouritism or nepotism, but in merit and professionalism in the running of the affairs of the state, Hon. Famurewa stated.

He further noted that “there is no gainsaying the fact that education remains the bedrock upon which all other social structures are built and this has necessitated the need to structure it on quality background and value system.”

He noted: “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 a premium on professionalism, expertise and refined competence.”

He described the governor as a discipline and virtuous man, saying that he had been managing the state’s resources efficiently.

“We are greatly inspired with his outstanding performance through his financial and managerial prowess without adding to the debt burden of the state, as confirmed by the National Debt Management Office,” said he.
