on

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Salihu Mustapha has commended the Kwara State Government led by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq over the recently conducted recruitment exercise by the States Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) and State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).

A statement by his media aide Yakub Ishowo, obtained by the FidelinfoNews also urged successful applicants to live up to expectations of the government who conducted the recruitment in a transparent and merit based manner.

The statement read “I congratulate the Kwara State Government for promising, planning, and successfully implementing the merit-based recruitment process for the newly engaged TESCOM and SUBEB teachers in Kwara State.

“I also congratulate the newly recruited teachers for being the first among equals. To be picked strictly on merit from among over fifty thousand applicants, without knowing a former this or a former that, was no mean feat. It is a testament to the new normal that our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is evolving in the governance of the state.

“The only way, therefore, for the successful applicants to show gratitude to a state that has staked so much for them on this exercise is to live up to public expectations, and more importantly to play their parts in keeping the state on the same steady cause as the government has started and pursued so far.

“The government is looking up to you, our party is looking up to you, parents are looking up to you, the pupils are looking up to you, and of course, the critical mass of our citizenry are looking up to you. The good news is, nobody can tell you anymore that things cannot be better or done differently.

“In playing your parts, you have to understand that all eyes are now on you, and rightly so, as the class with the brains and the magic wand. Because to whom much is given, much is expected.
