The Ekiti government has postponed the examination scheduled for Wednesday for thousands of job seekers in the state.
“This is to inform the general public, particularly candidates, who obtained employment forms at the Ekiti Local Government Service Commission that the examination earlier slated to commence on Wednesday will no longer hold as scheduled,” announced the government.
Adewumi Fawekun, the director of the Appointment and Posting, who signed for the permanent secretary, Ekiti Local Government Service Commission, disclosed this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti.
She explained that Governor Kayode Fayemi had also directed that the application form fees be refunded to the applicants.
Ms Fawekun added that the three-day examination scheduled to commence on Wednesday would no longer hold.
“Further information will be conveyed to candidates in due course. Meanwhile, Governor Kayode Fayemi has directed that the employment forms be made free of charge to all candidates,” the government official stated.
She said the date of refund of the application fees would be communicated to the affected candidates soon.
The Ekiti government two months ago invited interested candidates to apply for vacancies in both junior and senior categories of its workforce.
