Taraba Governor Lifts Ban on Employment
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
Taraba State Governor, Mr Darius Dickson Ishaku, has announced the removal of embargo earlier placed on employment in the state.
Addressing parents of students of Taraba State indigenes studying in Venezuela, who visited him at his office on Friday, the Governor noted that he was optimistic that the Rescue Mission would succeed in the state considering the level of its acceptance by the people.
He further said apart from footing some of the outstanding allowances of the students as well as facilitating their return to the country, plans have also been completed to give them permanent employment so that the state can benefit from the knowledge they acquired during their studies in Venezuela.
The Governor explained that the objective of the Rescue Agenda is to give the people of the state a sense of belonging, particularly to rescue them from their immediate challenges, stressing that the Rescue Agenda was not restricted to a particular group of people but all-encompassing for the common good and success of people of the state.
He explained that the reason for lifting the ban on employment was because of the wide gap in the state civil service which has become expedient to correct with utmost urgency, reiterating his administration’s resolve to ensure that all loopholes that exists in the service are expeditiously corrected to have a vibrant workforce.
Mr Ishaku called on youths in the state willing to contribute their quota to the development of the state and the rebuilding of the civil service, which his administration is determined reorganise, to go to the state Civil Service Commission to obtain forms for employment.
