MANY physically challenged persons across the 33 local government areas of Oyo State yesterday blocked the roads that led to the state government secretariat in Ibadan.
They are demanding more slots in the non-teaching arm of the Oyo State Teaching Service Commission, TESCOM.
The protesters alleged that they applied as non-teaching staff of TESCOM but some of them were disqualified.
TESCOM had released a list of 7,000 successful candidates for non-teaching jobs. It was also gathered that only 149 physically challenged persons were shortlisted.
While demanding more slots, the aggrieved protesters urged Governor Seyi Makinde to intervene.
“We are protesting because of TESCOM’s non-teaching job. Most of our people were not given the appointment. Instead of giving it to our people, able-bodied people have taken over.
“They are supposed to give us five percent; that is 350. They gave us 149 instead of 350. That is the reason why we are here. We want the governor to intervene,” one of the protesters, Adegbuyi Adekunle, said.
