Olojede noted that the recent appointment has cleared all intrigues and mis- representations wrongly informing the NUT and her members that the present administration in the state has since vowed never to fix teachers in such positions again arising from the alleged poor performances of the last crop of secretaries in the sector as widely circulated in some quarters.
