The Oyo State Government has said that it employed 6,134 people into the state workforce in the last budgetary year.
Governor of the state, Seyi Makinde, made this known during a stakeholders’ town hall meeting held at Saki earlier today.
He said the Oyo state workforce has 5000 new teachers, 600 education officers and 534 medical and healthcare workers to increase efficiency in government service delivery.
The Governor, who was represented by his Deputy, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan, said the recruitment was based on the drive to gainfully engage and employ the youth population, hence reducing unemployment number.
He, therefore, urged the people to let their voices be heard as the government is set to relieve them at their pain points by heeding to their requests.
