Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has ordered the Teachers Service Commission to refund the N2,000 paid by applicants as fees for recruitment application forms in the state.
The directive was contained in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ibrahim Addra, on Thursday in Lafia.
Addra said the governor had not approved an amount for sale of forms, but had approved the recruitment of qualified teachers.
”The advertisements from TSC that applicants should pay N2,000 for purchase of recruitment forms, without proper approval from the governor, has already caused serious confusion, hence the need for this directive.
“By this directive therefore, the commission should immediately refund money to those who have already paid for the forms.
“We urge applicants who have paid to go to where they paid the money and retrieve it while awaiting further information regarding the recruitment,” he said.
