The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ondo State yesterday disagreed with the state government on the planned employment of 2,000 people into the state teaching service.

The opposition party, in a statement released in Akure picked holes in the exercise.

According to the party’s Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, the exercise was “deceptive and a mirage to cajole the people ahead of the 2015 general elections.

He argued that the recruitment exercise did not have a genuine back up and was propaganda by the government, as the state had not witnessed any meaningful development since the inception of the Mimiko led administration.

“What Ondo State people witnessed, since February, 2009, in the scope of employment and empowerment are nepotism, discrimination and partisanship.

“If 2,000 qualified teachers are genuinely recruited, in the highly-publicised recruitment plan of the government, and not the usual chicanery, trickery and media propaganda of the Mimiko-led administration, then, the Dr. Olusegun Mimiko-led administration would have scored a point, truly beneficial to the good people of the state, since inception in February 24th, 2009.

“If it takes the government six-years to embark on recruitment exercise, how many additional years will it take the same government to finally get the teachers into the classrooms to teach our children?

“No wonder, the mixed feelings and cheers that welcomed the recruitment plan from the good people of Ondo State, is therefore, understandable in view of the antecedents of the government.”

“Therefore, it took the people of Ondo State by astonishment, that a government that has abandoned them for almost six uneventful years suddenly announced its intention to recruit 2,000 teachers. Is this August recruitment exercise a bid to shore up the dwindling popularity of the government”?

Governor Olusegun Mimiko had last week directed the immediate massive recruitment of 2,000 teachers into the state’s teaching service by the Teaching Service Commission.
