The Ekiti State government has promoted 6,993 teaching and non-teaching workers in public secondary schools and 2,590 in local governments.
Chairman of the State Teaching Service Commission, Chief Abiodun Falayi, who gave details of the promotion, said it affected 3,963 teachers and 1,586 non-teaching workers.
Falayi, who regretted that the Ayodele Fayose administration inherited what he called abnormalities in cadres, un-harmonised structure as well as inaccurate nominal roll and seniority list, said several complaints were considered and rectified during the promotion.
The agency chief noted that issues about adjustment of inter-cadre transfer and conversion were settled.
According to him, the interview was decentralised in six zones for administrative convenience and to ensure that it did not interfere with academic activities in schools.
The Chairman of the Local Government Service Commission Mr. Sola Omotoso said the promotion was meant to motivate workers as well as engender efficiency and effectiveness in public service.
He urged workers to live up to their responsibilities and support government’s efforts to improve the public service.
