A group of unemployed environmental health graduates had visit and present their petitions to the Speaker, Lagos state house of assembly on their plight on the issue of ongoing recruitment by Lagos state local government service commission.The group is led by Nureni Bashorun whom stated that they have been working with local governments in Lagos for some years as casual staff with the hope that if vacancies exists, they will be absorbed, fortunately, the service commission placed an advert which includes environmental health officers, but those that applied were not call for interview while all other cadres were call, thus giving room of rumour and speculation that we would not be part of the recruitment.
"Why would they not invites us, having made the application open for everybody. They should create a level playing ground and allow everyone who is qualified to participate in the ongoing screening and interview", Nureni Bashorun said.
Responding, the speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, represented by Mr Segun Olulade, Chairman House committee on health said he will look in to the grievances of the group and do justice accordingly.
"We will contact your representatives and also call on other parties to explain the rationale behind it so that we can be on the same page....we will get back to you very soon", the speaker said.
