Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has approved the conduct of promotion examinations for all teaching service commission staff for the past four years.
The promotion examinations, including oral and written test, will involve 7,493 TESCOM workers from 2018 to 2021, to enable them move to the next cadre as part of the administration’s commitment to growth and workers’ welfare.
A statement by the TESCOM Chairman Bello Taoheed Abubakar commended the Governor for his commitment to workers’ welfare in the state as he continues to accord them their rights and privileges since coming on board.
He said the schedule for the examination and interviews will be released in due course.
Abubakar therefore urged TESCOM workers to reciprocate the gesture by being more committed to their duties and to join hands with the administration to make its education policies a success.
AbdulRazaq’s administration had last year implemented promotion arrears for teachers dating back to 2015, 2016, and 2017, a great feat that was commended by teachers and unionists across the state.
