The Ondo State House of Assembly,
House Committee on Information led by the Chairman, Hon Olugbenga Omole has directed the Chairman of OSRC and Orange FM to furnish it with details of its proposed recruitment exercise.
The OSRC Chairman and the Management team was summoned
to a meeting with the House Committee on Information following public outcry on the recruitment cost among others.
At the meeting, members noted that the Three Thousand Naira (#3000) charged as recruitment cost is on the high side and should be reduced to One Thousand Naira (#1000) 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 (#1000) recruitment cost was allowed in view of the fact that OSRC as a broadcasting institution does not take 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.
