A prominent member of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state, Senator Makanjuola Suleiman Ajadi has commended the state Governor, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for his proactive approach in ordering the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) to refund N2,000 and N1,500 examination fees
collected from teachers who applied for positions of principals and vice principals in the state.
According to Senator Ajadi who was a former Presidential Liaison Adviser to the National Assembly, the governor’s decision for a refund to the affected teachers would go a long way to stem all kinds of levies and charges in our institutions, particularly in primary and secondary schools.
He described the governor’s action as a welcome development saying, “this is an indication that the governor is monitoring every bit of event in government circles, which is the right thing to do”.
Ajadi maintained in a statement on Monday that the governor has done the right thing, which he said would serve as an additional motivation to the affected teachers and a strong warning to all the heads of schools, departments and agencies in the ministries that governor Abdulrazaq would not tolerate nonsense in whatever nomenclature.
” What the governor has done is a testimony to the effect that this government is committed to best global practices that would stimulate higher production in the value chains.
“What the governor is saying is that the old and inefficient order must give way to prompt service delivery to the people of the state”, the Ifelodun LGA -born politician said.
Ajadi who is also the Peoples Frontier Movement leader in Kwara South stated that there was no need to encumber the teachers with unnecessary charges because governor Abdulrazaq has restored payment of running costs to departments and agencies since he came on board.
The grassroots politician therefore advised kwarans to support ,the state government in its bid to make life more meaningful to the generality of the people in the state.
