Ogun TESCOM boss warns officers against lobbying for posting


Mr Olalekan Ifede, Chairman, Ogun Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), on Wednesday, warned officers and zonal secretaries in the commission against lobbying for posting.

Ifede made the call in Abeokuta, while speaking during the screening and induction ceremony for Mr. Alagbe Kolawole and Mr. Lawal Alabi, as zonal secretaries.

He noted that the unwholesome act was against public service rules and might disqualify them for such position.

The TESCOM chairman said the minimum number of years officers, principals, vice principals or zonal secretaries could spend on a duty post, was three.

He warned that any officers who lobbied for posting under the space of three years without genuine or cogent reasons would have him or herself to blame.

He advised the inductees to see their new postings as calls to service in the delivery of good and qualitative education, saying that the present administration would leave no stone unturned to improve the sector.

On his part, Commissioner 111, in the Commission, Mr. Olanrewaju Majekodunmi, said it was a privileged for the inductees to be screened and inducted same day.

He noted that the administration of Gov. Dapo Abiodun would not create unnecessary vacuum in the education system across the state.

Responding on behalf of his colleagues, a zonal secretary, Kolawole, appreciated the state government and the board for the opportunity, adding that they would discharge their duties as expected.
