Over 100 employed candidates in the Ekiti State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) are yet to get employment letters.

Sources disclosed to WazobiaReporters that instruction came from the State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, to stop issuance of employment letters to the successful applicants.

After their names had been released as those who were successful among the applicants, in November 2020, they were made to pay a sum of N5,000 each for induction, handbook and others.

A letter dated November 26, 2020 and signed by Biodun Adalumo for the TESCOM Permanent Secretary read; “Sequel to your successful performance in the Recruitment Examination and Oral Interview by the Teaching Service Commission, you are to make available documents listed below to enable the Commission issue you Letter of Offer of Appointment and your subsequent posting instructions.”

The successful applicants paid N1,000 for Teachers’ Manual, N1,000 for Records of Service, N500 for Job Card and N2,500 for Induction Materials, totalling N5,000.

The money was paid into TESCOM account number 0537177025 domiciled in First City Monument Bank.
