Oyo State Government has started the distribution of appointment letters to the 5,000 newly-recruited teachers by the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).
The Chairman of TESCOM, Pastor Akinade Alamu, disclosed this in a statement made available to reporters on Tuesday in Ibadan.
He said the distribution of 4,400 letters to successful applicants started on Monday.
Alamu said the government approved 5,000 appointment letters for distribution and 4,400 letters have been released by TESCOM, while the remaining were withheld due to errors discovered on the part of the applicants .
He said the errors included misspelt names, as well as invalid emails, among others.
He assured those yet to receive their letters that they will receive them immediately the correction of errors is made.
Alamu said the collection of the letters was decentralised to avoid overcrowding at the state secretariat and prevent violation of the COVID-19 safety protocols.
He directed successful applicants to resume at their duty posts, as the academic session had started.
“While congratulating the successful applicants, we appeal to those that are also successful, but are yet to get their letters to be patient.
“We discovered that 600 letters had errors that needed to be rectified, that will be sorted and corrected as we speak and will be distributed as well,” Alamu said.
