Omoleye in a statement said the recruitment which will be coordinated by the state government and the National Directorate of Employment would take place between Monday, September 7 and Wednesday, September, 9 at the 16 councils in the state.

He said: “The recruitment exercise has no provision for online registration or registration by proxy. Interested applicants are to visit their local governments of origin with their local government attestation letters at 8 am each day.

“Those who had earlier participated in the pilot exercise need not apply as it will amount to double entries thereby disallowing fresh applicants opportunities to benefit from the programme.”
