The Oyo State Government says it will give automatic employment to all persons with Disabilities who meet the requirements in the ongoing recruitment exercise of the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM). The Special Adviser to the Governor on Persons Living with Disability, said this on Monday in Ibadan, before the screening which was held.
Mr Adekanbi said the Seyi Makinde administration would continue to give special attention to the people of Oyo State, especially persons living with disability with a view to bringing succour to them.
Mr Ayodele Adekanbi also said the state would also organise it own N-Power programme to reduce unemployment in the state.
“When this version of N-Power programme is launched, persons with Disabilities would be given a fair share and adequately taken care of.
“Those who recently completed their two years N-Power programme under the Federal Government and were not retained can come to my office.
“I know that some of them did apply into the current recruitment exercise in Oyo State.
“Besides, those of them who only possess vocational skills would be empowered to make a living,” he said.
According to Inclisive News network, some persons with Disabilities in Ibadan recently appealed to the Federal Government to convert their two-year N-Power service to permanent employment.
