By Josephine Oguntoyinbo
The Ondo State House of Assembly has directed the Chairman of Ondo State Radiovision Corporation OSRC/Orange FM, Mr Kunle Adebayo, to furnish it with details of its proposed recruitment exercise.
This was part of the resolution at the end of a meeting on Monday between members of the House Committee on Information and the management of OSRC.
The OSRC Chairman and the Management team had earlier been invited to a meeting with the House Committee on Information following public outcry on the recruitment cost among others.
In the resolution presented by Chairman House Committee on information , Mr Olugbenga Omole, ,members noted that the three thousand (#3,000) naira charged as recruitment cost is on the high side and should be reduced to one thousand (1,000) naira in order to reduce the burden on job seekers.
They added that recruitment is a component of strategic planning hence should be a product of a budgetary provision.
Members advised the Chairman and Management team of OSRC to be wary of the public procurement act while hiring consultants whether corporate or individual.
Members noted that the one thousand naira recruitment cost was allowed in view of the fact that OSRC as a broadcasting institution does not take monthly subventions from government.
In his response, Chairman of OSRC Management Committee, Mr Kunle Adebayo noted that professional expertise will be prioritised during the recruitment exercise.
While thanking the lawmakers for their observations, Mr Adebayo promised not to do anything that would jeopardize the interest of government and people of Ondo State.
Members present at the meeting include, Mr Toluwani Borokini (Vice Chairman), Prince Abayomi Akinruntan, Samuel Ademola, Akintomide Akinrogunde, Felemu Gud Bankole, Mrs Tomomewo Favour, Ogunmolasuyi Oluwole, Rasheed Elegbeleye and Taofik Mohammed Oladele.
