The Lagos State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) has again received another award from the Nigeria Association of The Blind for excellence in service delivery and inclusive governance. 

The Chairman of TESCOM, Mrs. Olabisi Ariyo, received the award from the Chairman of the Nigeria Association of The Blind in Lagos State, Barrister Lukman Salami, during a courtesy visit to the Commission, expressing her gratitude to the body for the recognition.

Mrs. Ariyo gave an assurance that the Commission will not relent in its efforts to give all qualified members of the State the chance to contribute their quota to the development of society, stressing that TESCOM is working closely with the Association’s representative, Mrs. Grace Egbogi, to ensure the rights of their members are adequately protected in the scheme of things.

In her words: “We will not relent in our efforts to empower people who are constant proof of the fact that there is ability in disability”.

While presenting the award to the Chairman of TESCOM, Barrister Lukman Salami said the gesture demonstrated the group’s appreciation of the opportunity given to its members, who were employed as Secondary School Teachers in the State’s Teaching Service.

Salami acknowledged the contribution of Mrs. Ariyo to the achievement of inclusive governance in Lagos State dating back to her tenure as Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education.

He implored staff to emulate the Chairman’s admirable behaviour by considering qualified members of the Association of the Blind still on the waiting list for employment.

Recall that the Commission had recently received a similar Award of Recognition from the Department of Early Childhood Care and Primary Education, Lagos State University of Education (LASUED), formerly known as Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED).
