Physically challenged persons protest in Oyo

Physically challenged persons protest in Oyo

Many physically challenged persons from across some local government areas in Oyo State have stormed the Oyo State Secretariat at Agodi to protest alleged marginalisation.

They demanded to be given more non-teaching jobs by the Oyo State Teaching Service Commission.

The protest, which started in the morning, caused gridlock on the roads around the area forcing some motorists to make detours and found alternative routes to their destinations.

\AThe protesters called on Governor Seyi Makinde to intervene in the employment issue, saying out of 350 slots promised them, they said their members given 149 slots.

One of protesters, Segun Adeoye, said, “We are here today protesting because we were shortchanged in employment by TESCOM.


“Our members were given 149 slots instead of 350 we were promised. That is why we want to call the attention of Governor Makinde to please intervene in the issue.”

The Commissioner for Information in the state, Dr Wasiu Olatubosun, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.

The commissioner did not pick the calls placed to his telephone by our correspondent.
